HTML 4 u Tag
Also see HTML5
This page contains information about the HTML 4 version of this element. For a more up to date version, see HTML5
In HTML 4, the
<u> tag is used for rendering underlined text.
Although this tag as been re-introduced to HTML5, it has a slightly different meaning in HTML5. Having said this, most browsers still render the
<u> element with an underline, and as such, you should avoid using it where it could be confused for a hyperlink.
Also see the CSS text-decoration property for more options on underlining text.
