I'm glad you are all experts on underlining (Is there even such a
thing?  If there is, that is pathetic)!  Links have ALWAYS been
underlined as best practice for web development.  Breaking them apart
for hanging characters all of a sudden is unreasonable.  I don't care
what any supposed "expert" says.  Common sense says you don't change
something unless it's broken, and it wasn't broken.  No one asked for
this change.  If someone did, it most certainly should NOT have become
the default behavior.  It should be on the person wanting the change
to have to add CSS styles for this CHANGED behavior.  Instead, I'm now
being punished by having to get rid of this stupid change by adding
CSS styles to all of my websites and pages (which are numerous)
because of some silly unnecessary DEFAULT behavior change.

Change the "DEFAULT" way its displayed for decades if you want... but
it totally doesn't make you right!  It's a question of how something
displays, and I prefer the old default behavior which was with us for
decades.
