I agree. The rotated glyph is part of the text run, and text decoration such as underline should be aligned along the text baseline. 

Thank you,

> Should the underline rotate with the glyph or remain horizontal? Safari/Chrome do the former, Opera the latter.  (Didn't test IE since I did not want to suffer the pain of starting up my VM right now.)  I'm leaning towards preferring rotating the decorations.
