Description asiansteev 2007-04-11 04:52:38 UTC
1. Type some text with Underscore (and perhaps outline to see the break more
clearly) (see example test case)
2. Select a sub-string of that text, such as a single letter, and italicize it.
 The Underscore breaks into a seperately defined underscore.
3. Un-italicize the sub-string, and the underscore will still be broken, even
though the the style of text remains the same as the surrounding now.

This strikes me as a problem for a couple of reasons.  If the format is
consistant, there should be no break.  
Also if you click on ANY part of the word ("ASIANSTEEV" in the example), and
toggle the underscore, the entire word's underscore toggles on and off
suggesting that the word is being treated as a single entity, but the break remains.
And lastly, (and least importantly) a major competitor's word processing program
never breaks underscore.  Is the expected behaviour documented anywhere?
Thanks!

MRU->HDU: See attached sample. The underline is interrupted in the second and
third line - there a character has got a different formatting (italic) than the
other ones.
