The HTML <u> tag stands for underline which helps to underline the text enclosed within the <u> tag. Underlining the text is mainly done to indicate the unarticulated or styled differently from normal text, i.e. to denote the misspelled words. The HTML <u> tag is supported by HTML4.1 but deprecated in HTML5. To achieve the same, the CSS text-decoration property can be used by setting its value as underline.
