You use border to change the underline.
You can use hover to change colors for mouse over/out

:
<a href="change-underline-color.php" style="text-decoration: none; border-bottom: 1px solid #999999">change underline color</a>

But if i use border, it creates a border across the whole width of the screen and text-decoration  creates only below the text, so i cannot use border here

This code doesnt do a border across the whole width of the screen :

<a href="change-underline-color.php" style="text-decoration: none; border-bottom: 1px solid #999999">change underline color</a>

You could give the h1 display:inline or float:left to make it only as wide as needed.

aconrad said nothing about using PHP. He just linked to an example.

Try this:
h1{
  display: inline;
  border-bottom: 1px solid #999999;
}
