The bulk of "abbr" elements is used in the KJV in footnotes. I only
looked in Xiphos where the rendering of footnotes is quite spartan. I
am not sure if any other libsword based frontend is more "generous" in
the rendering of footnotes.

There are a few abbr elements in the KJV's body though - one for
example is in the title of Revelation. Hover your mouse over the St of
St John. A tooltip should appear saying "Saint"

The OSIS element is transfered into xhtml which has the exact same
element, but the OSIS attribute "expansion" becomes "title" in XHTML.
The attribute in turn is offered by way of CSS as a tool tip. libsword
offers to frontends a standard CSS sheet which make overriding of
certain ways of rendering quite easy.
