Method for Automatic Determination of Underscore Line

Since different fonts may have different size characters within the allotted character space, the line used for understanding must be adjusted accordingly.

It is a burden to the user to have to specify this, plus memory is required to store this information for each font.

In accordance with the new method, the row in the character space that is used for underscoring is changed automatically between fonts with no memory requirements for storing this information. A representative capital letter for the font is analyzed and the bottom line used by this character is determined. One line is skipped and then the next line is used underscoring characters on this font.
