Abbreviation code for ADA compliance

We are in the process of coming from Blackboard to Canvas and beginning to create courses within the Canvas LMS.  In order to achieve ADA compliance, according to WCAG 2.0 standards, all acronyms and abbreviations require the use of the <abbr> tag or to have it written out. 


Each time we add the proper <abbr> HTML coding to an acronym/abbreviation, Canvas strips it.  We need to be ADA compliant but can't find any resources or guides to help with this.

 

What am I doing wrong?
