Accessibility: Audit usage of abbreviations.

Title attributes on abbreviations are only available to a minority of users. The
best option is to avoid unnecessary abbreviations when possible. In the other cases,
use an <abbr> element (which provides a hint to user agents on how to announce
and display the abbreviation) and provide an expansion in plain text on first use.

  • readme.html: improves abbreviations and removes unnecessary title attributes
  • options-general: removes unnecessary abbreviations and improves the remaining ones
  • customizer schedule changeset date: removes unnecessary abbreviations and improves the remaining ones
  • posts table date: uses a span element instead of an abbr element because this is not an abbreviation

Fixes #46980.
