CJK font could have ulPosition and ulThickness to draw underline for Latin characters within the font, and in that case, underlines goes through the body of ideographs. 10 years ago, almost every CJK fonts have this problem. Today, such fonts are still easy to find.

Could we detect this failure in the font automatically and fix automatically by using text-underline-position:under?
