<!--hr with 2px height-->
<hr style="height:8px;background-color:black">
<!--hr with 8px height-->
<hr style="height:15px;background-color:black">
<!--hr with 15px height-->
<hr style="height:23px;background-color:black">
<!--hr with 23px height-->
<hr style="height:30px;background-color:black">
<!--hr with 30px height-->
  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.
  4. Both <head> and <title> tags are Paired tags. So, both have </head> and </title> ending tags respectively.
  5. Thirdly, <body> tag is used to define the webpage body. All the contents to show on website are written here.
  6. Here, in body we create different hr tags for horizontal lines. In first one, that is a simple hr tag no any additional attribute and css used here.
  7. So, it is default view of horizontal line.
  8. After this next other lines are same, in all we use hr tag and under hr we use style attribute. In style, we use here two properties that are height and background color.
  9. Background color is used to give color to lines. Where the thickness depends upon height property.
  10. Here, we give different values in pixels to height and you can see that the thickness goes increasing with increase in height given in pixels and vice versa. We hope that you understand the concept of height.
  11. At last, the <body> and <html> tags are closed with </body> and </html> respectively.
