But it was possible with the old Acronyms recipe, or did I get it wrong?
Other wikis also seem do do it via a global list, e.g dokuwiki:
The acronym/abbreviation feature was one of the things that made me  
try pmwiki. Now I do not know if/how I can get it to work. Typing the  
abbreviation every time is just too cumbersome, also if you already  
know it from mind, you don´t need a tooltip.
