As FaeLynne pointed out, links will still appear in blue, and underlined text would appear in black. I don't suspect there would be much - if any - confusion over that.

There are a myriad of uses for underline; adhering to proper MLA standards is just one of them. I don't think I am alone by any means in yearning for the ability to underline text. For me, the most important use it would serve is to highlight text within a quote without changing the original font. For example, I like to post articles with figures and data that I want to make explicitly clear to my audience, yet I don't like to use bold, because as I mentioned, it distorts the original font of the text.

Once again, there are many uses for underlining text, and Fae and I have outlined merely a couple. If you must object, please do not use our two examples as the basis of your decision; please consider that there are a great many of us that would love to have the option of underline available.

One last thing: pretty please with a cherry on top! Razz
