That was what I thought the bug report and discussion were about.  Thanks for

And checking the original report and its linked pages (e.g.,
https://bugs.launchpad.net/nxhtml/+bug/449837), I still have that impression:

"After using tidy if an underlined html/CSS items is immediately followed by a
line break/return the underline continues across the page & goes on to the next
line to finish @ the next block of text."

"Followed by a line break/return" seems pretty clear to me.

So maybe Stefan wants to file a separate bug for the soft-return/line-wrapping
case he's really interested in. ;-)
