### CSS border-right equivalent

Hello!

I would like to annotate text in the following manner:

I'm aware of \underline and \overline, but I need to make a border on the right side, like in the attached image, so it looks like an unbroken chain of "__|¯¯|__|¯¯|__".

Thank you.

Hi Toshiro,

welcome to the board!

A quick and easy way would be to define a TikZ matrix for the characters, where each character is a node which can be referred to, for drawing such a path.

For example:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass{article}\usepackage{tikz}\usetikzlibrary{matrix}\begin{document}\begin{tikzpicture}  \matrix (m) [matrix of nodes]{    A & B & C & D & E\\};  \draw (m-1-1.north west) -- (m-1-1.north east) -- (m-1-1.south east)    -- (m-1-2.south west) -- (m-1-2.south east) -- (m-1-2.north east)    -- (m-1-5.north east);\end{tikzpicture}\end{document}
