Use of underlining

The Manual of Style requests that because the use of underline indicates text with a hyperlink, do not use underline as a way to emphasize text. I suggest therefore a different option is used to emphasize the "Quick Reference" heading. Perhaps just bold text is enough. --Steve (talk| contribs) 16:08, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

I think the Manual of Style of style is a bit unrealistic on this point. I think most users are intelligent enough to know the difference between a black underline and a blue hyperlink. The reason I created the template with the underline was simply because that was how the Quick References were already placed on the pages. I don't really think it matters either way, so I'll remove the underline from the template. -- Lotje2 17:50, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
