State names - use abbreviations or spell out?

Hi there,
When I place the following code in my page [<abbr>VA</abbr>] HomePageReader reads it as "vah"
That leads me to believe I should write it "Virginia"
Is there a standard? Would JAWS read it differently, for example?

Thanks very much for any comments.
