How to add horizontal line to webpage

To add horizontal line on webpage use the html code for horizontal line. These examples will show you the basic html code. CSS coding for these same effects are slightly different. You can also add attributes such as color and size.

Html code for simple horizontal line <HR>

To add attributes such as color you would add the color attribute to your code. <HR color="red"> This example will give you a horizontal line like this

To get a horizontal line with height of 3 and width of 45 and color red you could use code like this <HR size="3" width="45" color="red">

Your size and width of 3 and 45 are displayed in pixels.

Want a candy stripe look horizontal line? Just use the horizontal line code 3 times. In our example we will have a red, yellow, and green line. Height for each will be 8, and width will be 70. Your line(s) will look like this

To get the lines above we used this code <HR size="8" width= "70" color="red"><HR size="8" width= "70" color="yellow"><HR size="8" width= "70" color="green">

Some times depending on your html editor or browser you may have to substitute the actual color wording RED with the HTML 5 digit equivalent so your code for color would be color="FF0000".
