Underlining is for typewriters because there was no other way to emphasize a word or phrase.

Avoid underlining if at all possible because it is too heavy, too close to the type, and bumps the descenders.

Typewriter way to emphasize a word or phrase.vs.Word Processor

  • Italic is for professional use to emphasize text.

  • Try bold type or a different type face.


Typewriter vs word processor13 l.jpg

ON A TYPEWRITER THE ONLY WAY TO EMPHASIZE A HEADLINE WAS TO MAKE IT ALL CAPITAL LETTERS OR UNDERLINE IT.

ALL CAPITAL TEXT IS DIFFICULT TO READ ACCORDING TO READABILITY STUDIES.

ALL WORDS BECOME RECTANGULAR IN THEIR SHAPE AND WE LOSE THE SHAPE RECOGNITION OF WORDS.
