Hi Stefan!
Using a combination of arm and leg lines works I am sure...that means  
that your underlining is a thin line, which is great! If you use a  
thin line, rather than a thick line, there is less chance it can be  
confused with thick shoulder lines...smile...

The combination of arm and leg lines is a little bit of work for  
you...You can get the same thing in an official symbol in the  
IMWA...It is the fifth column of symbols under Punctuation....the  
single thin line is a long thin line...
