I donít personally do it for ASL, but I know that Stefan does for DGS. It is really the writerís preference. I personally donít underline proper nouns just because I donít really feel there is a need for it. That could just be because I know ASL very well, so I know when something is a proper noun and when it isnít even if it were to be the same sign in both cases. Something to think about. :-)
