    Looks like you accidentally used the 'insert' tag (<ins></ins>) when creating that post. This HTML tag is used to indicate an insertion (or addition) which browsers then often underline by default to distinguish it from the older text.

    The easiest way to get rid of this would be to:
    1. copy the text from your blog's web page (not from the Admin area)
    2. paste it into NotePad (or another text editor)
    3. copy it
    4. edit the post and replace the current content with the copied content.

    You'll need to recreate any links or sub-headings but that may take less work than manually removing the <ins> tags.

    When I post in Word Press, I can embolden text, and even italicize it, but WHY isn't there and UNDERLINE button? This is quite frustrating to me! Thanks for a reply!

    actually, there is the underline button in the visual editor second row of buttons second from left.

    if you don't have two rows of buttons, click the top right one (kitchen sink)
