CSS settings for horizontal rule (hr)

September 21, 2008

I was having some difficulty with the different ways that IE7 and Firefox rendered any CSS I’d set for the horizontal rule (hr) tag. Here’s my solution (substitute your own color and sizing values):

height: 1px;
color: #808000; /* only works in IE */
background-color: #808000; /* needed to color the HR in Firefox */
border: 0px; /* needed for Firefox so that it renders the 1px height correctly */
