this forum is absolutely awesome.  I've gained tons of knowledge here.  It would be a great addition to have keywords/abbreviations/acronyms have a tiny dotted underline or something and, on mouseover, maybe a small definition popup appears.  As a newcomer, i find myself going between threads constantly to re-learn what a table abbreviation is for.  Wouldn't take much to implement.  Maybe plop out all the definitions in a JS array or something then just parse the page once rendered and wrap the acronyms/etc with a wrapper.  Then just handle the mouseover event and you're done!

Just a suggestion! -- I'd be glad to help with this change if anyone wanted to let me lol (my background is primarily PHP and also front end web development)

Thanks again for this great board!
