More on the underline property to indicate links in PDFs:

Acrobat/Reader 6 and higher support a link setting that produces underlines which are visible on-screen but are not printed, so that paper output is not cluttered.

These underlines are displayed uniformly in Acrobat/Reader, regardless of the zoom level, whereas FrameMaker's underlines -- whether single or thin -- are thick and are displayed inconsistently (some may show up as thick and other as thin; zoom in or out and what was thick may now be thin and vice versa).

A sample PDF demonstrating this is available at (60K); see for more information.
