Use this tag to underline text. It can be used in conjunction with other tags (italic, bold, etc.).

The code requires an opening and a closing tag:

<u> – opening tag
</u> – closing tag

All text between the opening and closing tags will be underlined. The tag has no other effect on non-text elements.

CODE EXAMPLE:

<u><b>Be careful</b></u> when you underline text so as not to confuse your readers, who may think the underlined text is a link.

RESULT:

Be careful when you underline text so as not to confuse your readers, who may think the underlined text is a link.

Note: Most browsers automatically display hyperlinks with an underline, so an accepted web standard is underlined = hyperlink. Because of this, you may wish to avoid using underlines in a situation that would easily be confused with hyperlinks.
