    I'm embarrassed to admit it, but it was only 3 weeks ago I finally learned how to put a horizontal line in a webpage! sad

    Yes, despite having dozens of sites and making webpages for over 6 years, it was only last month that I figured out how to make a line appear in my pages.

    I assume it was because you seldom use them, so I never gave it much thought. Anytime I wanted to make a line in a page I just gave up.

    So for everyone else, if you want to make a simple horizontal line to separate anything on a page, simply use this code:


    I can't get the code to stay, so just put the HR inside the two open/close characters. That's it, simple as that. Putting that code anywhere will give you a horizontal line.

    Of course most of you already know that. See, everyone learns something new every day! big_smile

    I have a simple wordpad page on my desktop at the far right and I put all these little code gems and other useful stuff, like making words jump up and down, in there - then when I am working I have the browser page an inch open on the left so I can see it if I want it.  I also put in those bits of code that change a page so they are to hand if I want to do the thing again.

      Yeah I have many notepad pages with codes and stuff in them for when I need them. Just too much stuff to remember on your own! smile

    Bill, try this next time:

    CSS 3

    .div { border-bottom solid thin rgb(204,204,204) }

    In Page
    style="border-bottom: solid thin #CCCCCC;"

    Why? If you are using IE or even older Opera, Firefox browsers, the Horizontal Rule can look hideously huge.

    smile have fun.
