How to underline text in a MText object?

A - answer If you are using an external MText editor or a LISP application, you can use control characters to underline text. The syntax is \L and \l (= uppercase and lowercase "L") - e.g.:

Please \Lunderline\l this

Please underline this

NB: This will not work in the Internal MText editor.
