Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-text-decor] Results for text-underline-position: under

My guess is that it is using the font descender for the underline 
position not the actual extents of the text box, which would explain 
why the results vary so much between fonts. Using a fixed value makes 
sense I guess since you don’t generally want the underline position to
 change between different lines based on their context, but may be the
 descender is not the best choice at least for Arabic since glyphs 
tend to go past the ascender and descender rather often, no idea what 
would replace it though.
