Is it possible to set text-decoration underline underline styles?

e.g. like double underline or even double accounting or single accounting ones?

For Mozilla browsers, you can set a double underline with nested <span> tags:

<span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;vertical-align:4px;">Your text</span></span>

This will not work on IE, unfortunately, so you can use an IE-hack and set border-bottom to double like this:

<span style="text-decoration:underline;_text-decoration:none;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;vertical-align:4px;_text-decoration:none;_border-bottom:3px double;">Your text</span></span>

The _ before the style means IE-only (as of now at least)

I'm not sure what you mean by double accounting and single accounting, though...

thanks Zyloch.

I'm sure if double underline is not natively supported by CSS then double and single accounting underline (like in Excel) is not natively supported either.

Hmmm, if I may - a lot of unecessary code and IE only hacks there :-(

<span style="border-bottom: double red;">Your text</span>

or for links

a.special
{
border-bottom: double red;
}

<a href="" class="special">Your text</a>
