Underlining is supported; it appears to be a problem in the way the fonts are rendered.
So it's a bug and not a request?
I think there may actually be a bug report on it somewhere.
I did a Google run for "maptext underline" and only got a few hits but no bug reports. Reliable search features are scarce these days.
This brings up the question of just how much style markup is available to maptext? I can't remember if it can use <span> tags or not, but if so, how much CSS markup does it support?
The issue was brought up in id:903751, but a separate report for underline and strikethrough not working was never posted. So it looks like this still needs a bug report. Or this thread could simply be moved and made into one.

The crux of the issue appears to be that the font drawing routines used by DirectX simply don't allow for such things. Which means underlining and strikethrough will have to be done manually. This adds a slight complication in that the way text is drawn is piecemeal, so I'll have to think of a workaround.
