Horizontal rule: Change the rule style
What options are there for setting the presentation style of a horizontal rule?
Well and Bucket in the form of a capital A
The horizontal rule (<hr> tag) is normally a blunt instrument. To make it more useful, Wikipublisher lets authors and administrators interpret horizontal rule markup (----) in a number of ways:
Try different rule settings. Press the “options” button and look under Text settings for Rule style and Rule style repeat.
By default, the PDF generates a single centred ornament.
Authors can use the hrstyle metadata type to set the ornament, shown in A selection of ornaments. The numeric values were chosen from the Zapf Dingbats font; see Mittelbach and Goossens (2004, Table 7.9: p 379). Choosing the “space” style omits the ornament and inserts a vertical space. Administrators can also replace the ornament with a rule, by setting
The hrrepeat meta type determines whether Wikipublisher produces 1 or 3 ornaments. The default is 1; authors can set hrrepeat=on to produce a row of 3. Regardless of the rule style used, the paragraph after the rule starts flush left, i.e. without the usual 1 em indent.
