I'm typesetting a manuscript that is required to turn all \emph into underlines. But then I want to use the original definition of \emph for the list of references. How do I get \emph to behave like normal again?

Declare \normalem at the appropriate point in the document body. (The correspondent macro to switch to "underlined" emphasis is \ULforem.)
