GuideML - HR Tag

0 Conversations

The <hr/> inserts a horizontal rule. This can be useful for breaking up text without using headers.

Syntax and Usage

This is an HTML tag, so it can be upper or lower case, but we recommend lower case.


Simply insert a <hr/> tag where you want the horizontal rule.

Note that this tag is unlike most others in that it doesn't have an open and close tag, it just has one tag, terminated with a / character. This is a shorthand for <hr></hr> (though this won't work in GuideML).

Known Issues



This is above the horizontal rule.

This, however, is below the rule.

<p>This is above the horizontal rule.</p> <hr/> <p>This, however, is below the rule.</p>
