I often see small, superscript letters of "qv" in the Handbook Online. What is it's meaning?
The text of the New Handbook of Texas employs two types of cross-reference, the symbol qv and the see or see also reference. (1) The symbol qv denotes Latin quod vide, "which see." The plural of qv is written qqv. A qv is printed beside a noun phrase that is the subject of an article in the New Handbook; qqv means that each item in the preceding series is represented by an article. In the Handbook of Texas Online, these references are being replaced with a hyperlink to the referenced article. For more information about these cross-references, see the full description in the Handbook help section.
