Dear Michel,

about CSS3 text module draft
at http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-css3-text-20021024

would you please consider this?

It is a RFE for new value in 'text-underline-mode',
besides existing 'continuos' and 'words'.

This RFE is a requirement from CTL languages
(like Thai, Hindi, Arabic, Hebrew,...)
even some Latin characters may need this.

Since in those languages, there are many 
characters that have "tail" below the level
of the "underline" line (think about "qgyj").

And in many case, if the underline strikes
over the tail of these character
-- it will be very hard to distinguish
one particular character with its close pair.
(like Thai character "Sara U" vs "Sara UU").

So we need new mode of underline,
to let the line skip over these characters.

Please see the example images in that link for
better understading.

Thank you & regards,

THINK TWICE, before sez it "Vidva Inter" or "TU
Engineer". Say it "SIIT", our institute's name.
Don't make ppl confuse, "SIIT" _IS NOT_ "TEPE".
