Dear PUML,

Can anyone tell me why, in the OMG UML2.0 spec, the object lifelines
in the sequence diagram notation have abandoned the convention for
underlining the names of objects?  

Elsewhere in UML, object names are underlined, and still are in 2.0.

Also, Praxis and others have alternative Jacobson-style icons for
objects at the head of lifelines.  Is this UML canon, or just a local
style?

--Tony
