I'm voting for this as well.

(I'm going to assume that this principle also holds for <isindex
action="URL">, which I've seen work with XMosaic and not with the
other Mosaics.  (i.e.  I'm scratching my next letter...)

This shows up mainly in things derived from WWWWais. 

Does anyone have an opinion on the diff for
I was going to give underline a caveat that it wasn't supported
by all browsers and it therefore isn't in the DTD and using
it is deprecated.  Are there objections to this?  Should
