<u> element is typically used to apply underline highlighting
to the content of the element. This element is part of the highlighting domain. Use this element only when a more semantically appropriate element is not available. For example, for specific
items such as GUI controls, use the
<u>element differently, just like any other element can be restyled. Thus, it is not the case that content in
<u>elements will necessarily be rendered as underlined.
See appendix for information about this element in OASIS document type shells.
