Which is proper/acceptable?
Take for instance this sentence:
We would like to use IBM machines.
Now consider that I needed to fully qualify IBM... How do I make this not read strangely?
We would like to use IBM (International Business Machines) machines.
We would like to use International Business Machines (IBM) machines.
(Please note that IBM is not the real acronym but it's similar to what I need to pull off)
I should add that part of my question is that if it's incorrect or less correct to put [Fully qualified name] (Acronym) or [Acronym] (Fully qualified name)
