Lines are helpful in emphasizing sections of a page.  In order to create lines, you must become familiar with the following html terminology and code.  (Column borders are a way to create vertical lines along the sides of columns, but do not function as flexibly as horizontal lines).


Horizontal Line


Creates lines across a page
Specific width
Right Alignment
Left Alignment
Center Alignment


<hr width=”—%”>
<hr align=”right”>
<hr align=”left”>
<hr align=”center”>

Column Border

Creates fine dotted line (along columns only).  Combined with column width code, separated by a space.



careful where you place the code, especially with respect to column code.

the html code frequently reverts to a simple line.  pay attention.
