A list of abbreviations?

Recommended Posts

That list is fine as it stands, but it repeats one of those little errors that always bug me. ALT, AV, and (although it isn't on that list) SIM do not need to be, and should not be capitalised. They aren't acronyms*, but contractions of alternate, avatar and simulator. 

*Most of the terms on that page aren't acronyms either, but initialisms. The difference seems to be passing into grammatical obscurity.
