Remarks

Windows Internet Explorer 7. The Channel Definition Format (CDF) is obsolete and should not be used.

When the cursor is paused over a CHANNEL or an ITEM title, Windows Internet Explorer displays the text in the ABSTRACT element in a ToolTip located in the browser channel pane.

ABSTRACT is no longer an attribute of CHANNEL; it is now a separate element.
