How did Av and Tv come to be annotations for Aperture-priority and Shutter-priority modes respectively?
Av - Aperature Value
Tv - Time value (which is essentially shutter speed anyway...)

i kid u not... :p

Also, those abbreviations are pretty much a Canon-ism. Other manufacturers use different symbols.
