Arabic scripts.

See [`text-underline-position: 
under`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-decor-3/#underline-under). 
The example picture is Latin but this property is designed primary for
 East Asian scripts. From your description, it looks like Arabic 
prefers it too.

I just filed [a request to 
caniuse](https://github.com/Fyrd/caniuse/issues/3183) but WebKit and 
Blink (currently in beta) support this property. If you could see how 
it renders well for Arabic, that'd be helpful.

Unfortunately, I can't see it working in Gecko/Edge @gregwhitworth
