Therefore we have, HT(Hyper Text)=links to text that wehen a user clicks directed to another page and

(ML)= markup language refers to various tags used (ex:<h1>, <p>, <div> etc) in order to create content of a page

I think you're referring to the <abbr> element which can store an acronym as a tooltip and works with title attribute to do this.

There is an inititIal-letter CSS property which styles the first letter of a containing element but I'm not sure what initialism refers to in this case for HTML. :-)

Ah well, put simply Hypertext refers to links in HTML. "Hyperlinks". And it is links that make the internet what it is.

And the markup bit is about "markup language" which is simply a way of defining content that loads in a web browser. :-)
