Is it possible to get a triple underline in Word 2013?   I can see that there is a double underline...    I need a triple.  Please advise if possible.
thanks

You could use the drawing toolbar to just draw the lines or you could try this method

1. Select the word you want to triple underline.[/list]
2. Format >> Insert Text Box (do not be alarmed if it throws your sentence whacky -- you'll fix it in a later step)
3. Edit the text box such that: all internal margins are 0.0", no fill color, no line color.
4. Make the text box as small as possible without obscuring the text
5. Format the text box further: Layout >> Advanced >> Distance from text (left and right) set to 0"
At this point, move the text box back into position in the sentence, such that the words all look normal again.
6. Continue formatting: Format Text Box >> Text Box tab >> Convert to Frame... >> OK
7. Now, right-click on the frame border and select Borders and Shading
8. Select the triple border under "Style"
9. Under "Apply to:", choose Frame
10. Using the border-selection buttons, deselect all but the bottom border.
11. Press OK

Not really what you wanted, but here goes anyway ......

There is a special symbol that looks like an = sign, but with THREE horizontal lines.
It's not for underlining - It would go on the line underneath
                                                                                           ============

In word 2013 .....
Insert tab > Click Symbol (Blue Omega Symbol, on the right) > More symbols

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Sorry about that. The feature has been removed from word and so you would need to convert to a Word 97-2003 for this to work

Another option I have just tested is

1. Enclose the term in parentheses.
2. Before each parentheses, type EQ \x \bo.
3. Select each phrase, one at a time, and press Ctrl+F9.
4. Select each field and press F9 to update and toggle the display (or
Alt+F9 to toggle them all).

The EQ field with \x switch puts a box around a word. Adding the \bo switch puts it just on the bottom. Adding this single line to the double underline you already have gives three lines, though they're not quite the same length.

This is not a perfect solution but may be close enough for your needs
