With more and more acronyms appearing on the net I thought it would be great if somebody knew of, or could code, a widget to get first 10 results for an acronym off www.acronymfinder.com. Shouldn't be too hard, ideas?

The Dictionary app has a few acronyms built in for the old command/control D trick. Even has such things as WTF and RTFM

If you find a search widget that uses the web, like the eBay one, I think there would only need to be a few lines of change in the html or js file to make it into an acronym finder widget. Then just polish up the graphics.

I was looking briefly, but duh, I tried the dictionary widget, which I should already have known was not a web search and isn't any good. But one like the eBay widget or the package tracker widget or something like that -- the simpler the better.
