How to create abbreviations list for the contents of my document?
I want to create a tabel contains list of the abbreviations been used in my
thesis... but don't know whether MS Word support this or not?

- You could create index entries for them. But it's actually less work simply
to spell them out. As you've just shown, abbreviations save no time at all,
neither for you -- you have to do all this work to create a glossary, nor
for the readers -- who would have to refer to the glossary.

So your disdain for acronyms carries over to abbreviations. Misters Ed
and Rogers apparently agree :-)#2; Fri, 06 Jun 2008 09:42:00 GMT
- Yes, if you need to explain them. For the exactly the same reason. The
writer is making work for him/herself, and for the reader. Spell them out
and you eliminate both tasks.
