But is is, first introduced to the xTalk world by Bill Appleton in 
SuperCard 1.0, following the pattern established by HyperCard:

button = btn
field = fld
background = bg
card = ard

MC added a new one, almost too sparse for my tastes yet I don't mind 
using it:

scrollbar = sb

There are others as well.

I don't mind acronyms, as long as any not in widespread common use are 
defined within the text later using the acronym.

There are just too many TLAs to memorize all of them, and since that one 
might mean anything from "Temporary Living Allowance" to "Top Level 
Architecture" it would be useful if I noted at least once at the outset 
that I mean "Three-Letter Acronym". :)
