Does it? Your test page is interesting, but is postulates the use of
style sheet switching, which is really supported by Firefox only, if I
am not mistaken.

But you’re right, at least in the sene that
works OK in browsers, whereas
only works on Firefox; on other browsers, the underline is rendered as a
separate character.

For comparison, in Microsoft Office 2007 Word, foo332 Alt X places an
underline below the *first* “o”.
