CSS how to change the color of the line in underlined text

How to make a text underlined in CSS it's pretty clear. You just add text-decoration: underline; and that's pretty much it.

In CSS we can use:

  • text-decoration-color to set the decoration color
  • text-decoration-style and text-decoration-line to change decoration style

There is also a text-decoration-thickness property but with a weak browser support.
