Description

In TextFrame::PaintTextDecorations(), we draw the underline as a simple
rectangle. This is not correct, at least on the Mac, where the underline is a
broken line under letters with a downstroke (pgjQq...). We should use
NS_FONT_DECORATION_UNDERLINE and let the rendering context do the right thing.

Closed as WontFix. We can't let the OS draw the underline: the text decorations
are drawn by Layout to support HTML 4.0 (the underline can be of a different
color from the text, for instance)
