HTML 'hr' Tags/Elements


What Are "hr" Tags/Elements?



A "hr" element is a block level element that can be used directly as a sub-element in the body element. You can use "hr" elements to specify horizontal rulers. Here are basic rules about "hr" elements:

  • "hr" elements can only have empty contents.
  • "hr" elements are block elements. They can not be used as in-line elements.
  • "hr" elements will be displayed as solid horizontal rulers (lines).

Here is a good example of "hr" elements:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  <title>Horizontal Rulers</title>
  <p>Knock, knock Who's there? ...</p>
  <p>Why did the turtle cross the road? ...</p>

If you save the above document as rulers.html, and view it with Internet Explorer, you will see that a horizontal line is displayed as shown below:
