HTML hr tag

Example

A horizontal line is marked up as follows:
This is some text <hr /> This is some text


Definition and Usage

The <hr> tag creates a horizontal line in an HTML page.

Browser Support

The <hr> tag is supported in all major browsers.

Differences Between HTML and XHTML

In HTML the <hr> tag has no end tag.
In XHTML the <hr> tag must be properly closed, like this: <hr />.
All "presentation attributes" of the hr element were deprecated in HTML 4.01, and are not supported in XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD.

Tips and Notes

Note: The hr element renders differently in different browsers.
