HTML Horizontal Rule

A horizontal rule created by the tag <hr /> creates a horizontal line that can can be used to break a webpage into sections. A horizontal rule is a block-level element, which means it has embedded carriage returns before and after, placing it on it's own line. Shown below is a generic horizontal rule.

<hr />

The horizontal rule has several attributes that allow you to control its appearance.

AttributeMeaning
align Alignment on page, left, right, or center.
color Color of the rule.
noshade Normally horizontal rules display with 3D shading.
size Thickness in pixels.
width Width in pixels, or as a percentage of document width.

Horizontal Rule Example

<hr align="left" size="6" width="200" color="green" />

The code above creates the horizontal rule shown below.


I know this section should be about html only, but the example below shows what you can do by adding a little style to a horizontal rule.

<hr align="left" size="8" width="200" style="border-style:outset; background-image: url('bg000017.gif');"  />

If you're using the Firefox browser, you'll see a beautiful rainbow colored three-dimensional rule. If your using Internet Explorer, you'll see a three-dimensional gray rule.
