The positions of underlines and overlines in the presence of ruby text is
not specified. See the "Underlined Ruby" link in
for an example of this case.

(The relative positions of underlines and overlines in general are not
specified. See also comment 163 [1]. )

I had actually come across a long line of underlined text with ruby, but
I couldn't find it this time to scan in.

Considering this style of underlining, there's a problem with the position
that *is* specified for underlines in text-underline-position:

   # before-edge
   #    the underline, if set, is aligned with the 'before-edge' of the line box.

This would, if I'm understanding things correctly, place the underline
between text lines instead of between the text and its ruby.
