    It doesn't look like rocket science to me:

    <span style="border-top:1px solid; margin-top:1px;padding-top:1px;
    <span title="Nombre 142 écrit en chiffres romains">
    <span class="romain">CXLII</span></span></span>
    <span style="text-decoration:overline">
    <span title="Nombre 368 écrit en chiffres romains">
    <span class="romain">CCCLXVIII</span></span></span>
    <span title="Nombre 795 écrit en chiffres romains">
    <span class="romain">DCCXCV</span></span>
     représente le nombre 142&#160;368&#160;795.

    The style definition of "text-decoration:overline" might not
    be accessible, but the in-line definition of the 2nd overline
    for the double-overline ought to be a clue.
