As a common practice, the few languages that may be represented by abbreviations, are instead represented by their full names. Let me mention all or most of them:
- We have Category:American Sign Language, not Category:ASL.
- We have Category:Serbo-Croatian language, not Category:BCS language.
- We have Appendix:Hyper Text Markup Language, not Appendix:HTML. (the latter is a redirect)
- We have Appendix:A Programming Language, not Appendix:APL. (the latter is a redirect)

- Oppose. I question the wisdom of the current names of two of Daniel.'s examples. Why not Appendix:APL (or Appendix: APL (programming language)) and Appendix:HTML as primary names? Not that it matters so much. DCDuring TALK 16:26, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
- Oppose. At first sight, I didn’t even recognize "Appendix:A Programming Language" as being about APL. I say move to Appendix:HTML and Appendix:APL too. —Robin 13:55, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
