IPA Style

Wikipedia recomments placing a link before IPA text becuase the underscore makes reading the characters difficult. Is there a way to modify this template to comply? -- Mayosolo 16:41, 23 January 2006 (EST)

Yes, but I think that would look cluttery. What would you think of selectively removing the underline on IPA spans? --April Arcus 18:49, 23 January 2006 (EST)
Cosmetically, I agree about the clutter, particularly where there are several IPAs in a row. But I'm torn against my (perhaps undeserved) loyalty to Wikipedia guidelines. Also, I'm unsure whether it's technically feasible to change the CSS for all skins (including users' custom skins), though I am admittedly not an expert. From a design standpoint, it seems incongruous to change the appearance of one specific class. But none of these objections is going to drive me crazy. Honestly, it was a fairly picayune complaint in the first place. I've said my piece, and I cast it upon the winds of consensus. -- Mayosolo 04:36, 24 January 2006 (EST)
