Ah, so is this about which spellings of Pd are the most orthodox?

There's a reason why I spread the spelling "PureData" all over the place. The 
double uppercase makes it readable as two words, but the lack of space makes it 
look like one distinctive word and not like a common adjective followed by a 
very common name.

I spread that spelling all over the place.

"Pd" is too short except when you need a shorthand that is that short. It's a 
very common and equivocal two-letter combination (out of only 676) and it's 
useful for making silly jokes in french.
