Underlining

Source

There is not method per default for underlining text in restructuredText. This is not part of the specification. This is explained in Problems with StructuredText

The solution is to make use of the role command:

.. role:: underline
   :class: underlined

:underlined:`Underlined Text`

underlined:
  underline: true

Adding whitespace

Source

In order to put some extra whitespace between e.g. a heading and a paragraph, add the pipe:

Heading
-------

|
|
|

Lorem Ipsum dolor sit amet.

Section numbering
