The problem here is with this ebook file in particular because its .css file is not well formed.

I unzipped it and modified the .css to remove the text-decoration: underline entry and it worked properly.

This is what I did:

$ unzip 24571.epub.images
$ grep -r "text-decoration" .
./24571/0.css:    text-decoration: none;
./24571/0.css:    text-decoration: none;
./24571/0.css:    text-decoration: underline
./24571/0.css:    text-decoration: underline
./24571/pgepub.css:    text-decoration: none
$ vim 24571/0.css

I changed text-decoration: underline by text-decoration: none and I don't see the text underlined anymore.

This entry shouldn't affect to the whole text because it's inside a a:hover directive but the .css files are not well formed (e.g. they missed a lot of ";" at the end of each line and maybe other issues) and I guess webkit is being confused.

I did some other tests and I found an issue related to the mouse cursor when it's hidden. Maybe related to #4068

I tested the same eBook in Calibre ( and it doesn't underline the text. Even when you hover the text with the mouse. On the other hand, in Read if you don't use the touchscreen feature when you hover the text it's underlined.

Taking a look at the Calibre's code I found it makes a CSS flattering to remove some entries from the .css and change fonts, size, and so. That's is why the text is not underlined on Calibre.

That epub file is malformed, is not a Read issue.
