Now that style is extending to cover DeploymentDiagram and ComponentDiagram, you can define custom style stereotypes for them.  But how do you suppress the stereotype text from displaying?

e.g.

@startuml
<style>
.abbr {
  hyperlinkColor #black
  roundCorner 10
  ShowStereotype false
}
</style>
rectangle A <<abbr>> as "
Here is a [[{Three Letter Acronym} TLA]], for example.
"
@enduml

I want the "<<abbr>>" not to show.

I can see that a "ShowStereotype" style exists, but I can't find the syntax to turn it off.

PS I know "hide stereotype" can do this at a global level.

Is it backwards? Like hide at global and then show for specific ones you want?

lol; I couldn't make that work, but I like the idea.

Best I can offer is using the global negation, can't get it working with style either

hide stereotype
show <<abbr>> stereotype

Or
hide <<example>> stereotype
Also works

I'll accept "hide <<abbr>> stereotype" as an answer.  Nice one, thank you!
