HR is used to draw horizontal rules across the browser window. If the margins are currently smaller, for example because of images (IMG) which are placed against the margins, the rule will extend to these margins instead of the whole window. A horizontal rule is typically used to separate sections within a document.
In HTML 3.2, the appearance can be controlled more than in HTML 2. You can specify the thickness of the rule with the SIZE attribute, which takes an integer number of pixels. The width of the rule can be specified in number of pixels or as a percentage of the currently available window width, using the WIDTH attribute. Don't forget that percentage values must be quoted! The NOSHADE attribute is used to indicate that the rule should not get its usual shaded appearance, but instead should be drawn as a thick line.
