I tried the above. It threw errors at first because the last two
instances of javascript-mode-abbrev-table seem to need quoting. When I
quote those I still don't get the desired snippet behavior when I type
"for" and then space. I tired many simpler combinations also that
didn't involve the unless statement. No luck either. Does the above
code really work for you?

I can get snippets working with python mode.

I have a python-snippets.el file with the following

; -------------------------------------------------
 (snippet-with-abbrev-table 'python-mode-abbrev-table
    ("for" .  "for $${element} in $${sequence}:")
    ("im"  .  "import $$")
    ("if"  .  "if $${True}:")
    ("wh"  .  "while $${True}:")
 (provide 'python-snippets)
; --------------------------------------------------

and then in my .emacs file I have just the following because the
python mode file defines the abbrev table

; -------------------------------------------------
(add-hook 'python-mode-hook
        (lambda ()
          (abbrev-mode 1)
          (require 'snippet)
          (require 'python-snippets)
; -------------------------------------------------

Any ideas why the JavaScript version doesn't work?
