This page has been flagged with the following issues:
The hr element (<hr>) represents a paragraph-level thematic break in text. ("HR" stands for "horizontal rule", but browsers are not required to use a horizontal rule to represent this element.)
The hr (for horizontal rule) element (<hr>) represents a paragraph-level thematic break in text.
The <hr> tag, whilst historically used as a horizontal rule or section break is now used more for thematic breaks, such as separating different topics within a section of prose, or between scenes in a novel.
In HTML5, the <hr> tag defines a paragraph-level thematic break.
In HTML 4.01, the <hr> tag represents a horizontal rule.
However, the <hr> tag may still be displayed as a horizontal rule in visual browsers, but is now defined in semantic terms, rather than presentational terms.
This example uses the hr element to create a “paragraph-level thematic break”.
<p>This is a paragraph.</p> <hr> <p>With a “paragraph-level thematic break”.</p>
This is a paragraph.
With a “paragraph-level thematic break”.
