How can tooltips be currently added to abbreviations as long as the <abbr> HTML tag is unsupported?
Is there a Markdown equivalent or other workaround?

IMHO, hyperlinks with titles do a decent job.
Otherwise, if you feel the need to explain an abbreviation because it's not commonly used, you should introduce it, just like you would do in an article written on paper.
