Introduction

A javascript library that sets out to do one simple job: draw and animate the most perfect and playful text underline.

Underline.js is not designed to be the most useful javascript library. It is more exploratory, and it is trying to push the boundary of web typography. I want to propose these new css rules to W3C for css4 edition:

text-underline-color: #000000;
// auto means the same color as the text color, or hex value

text-underline-position: auto;
// could be ratio or px or auto

text-underline-skip: true;
// true to set holes around descenders, false to turn it off

text-underline-width: auto;
// could be auto or px or ratio

text-underline-animation: true
// true or false, this one is only for underline.js
