Supralinear line, underline or strikethrough

Linear features such supralinear lines, underlining, or strikethrough should be indicated using hi with an appropriate rend value.

The use of hi to indicate the physical appearance or decoration of characters on the stone or page is separate from any tagging of what that decoration might represent in the text. (See, e.g., numbers and numerals).
