Step By Step Guide On How To Add A Line In HTML :-

Here, HTML horizontal line tag is used to insert a horizontal line within a webpage. It is a singular tag and have no closing tag.

You can use hr tag anywhere in body and can also apply with the help of CSS. hr tag can be used inside any tag used in body also.

<!DOCTYPE html>
          <title> Title of the document<title>
 <hr style="background-color: blue; height: 2px; border-width: 0ch;">
<hr style="width: 50%;background-color: red;border-width: 0; height: 1px;" >
 <hr style="width: 100%;background-color: red;border-width: 0;" size="10">
  1. First, we write <! DOCTYPE html> which we used as an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML file is written in.
  2. Secondly, the <html> tag is used to indicate the beginning of an HTML document.
  3. As above now <head> tag is used to contain information about web page. In this tag a <title> tag is used which helps us to specify a webpage title. Both <head> and <title> tags are Paired tags. So, both have </head> and </title> ending tags respectively.
  4. Thirdly, <body> tag is used to define the webpage body. All the contents to show on website are written here. Here, in body we create three hr tags, each with different style. Let us discuss them one by one.
  5. In first hr tag, we use width, background color, border-width, height. Here, width is used to specify the width of hr, background-color is used to give color to hr, border-width is used to hide extra border and height is used for thickness of horizontal line.
  6. In this we use width 50%, means only half line shows according to size of webpage, whereas its color is red, and we disappears extra border with help of border-width. At last, the height given here is 1px which is thickness of line.
  7. In second, all the content is same as first, but no width is used here. So, uses 100% of its width and color used is blue whereas the height is 2px for thickness of line.
  8. In last, we use here size not height, you can use any one from them, and both are same. The size is inbuilt property of hr tag for thickness of hr line.
  9. At last, the <body> and <html> tags are closed with </body> and </html> respectively.
