Not all of us who read histonet are histotechs! Furthermore not all of us can 
afford the time to read histonet every day and may even miss it for weeks at a 
time so, as in my case, may miss references to abbreviations such as FFPE. I do 
not think the few extra seconds it takes to type out a terms such as this is 
too much to ask.
