Yes, I meant to include those. But other than a very small set of abbreviations, such as those, it makes sense to put a period after words not contained in that set, e.g., "Dr." for doctor and "Dr" for drive; "Wash." for Washington, and "wash" (no period) for wash, as in Wash Ave.

Did you mean Dr.=Doctor?

This completed a third more of the 700 abbreviations to be tested.

Look at the abbreviation list linked in the lead post of this thread. I think it has been updated to include the abbreviation for New York that works.
