HTML 4 stated:

The HR element causes a horizontal rule to be rendered by visual user agents.

Although (for reasons that are unclear [to me]) all the attributes were
deprecated.

This tag is currently in use a visual divider on many pages and is supported in
this manner by many user agents.


It seems that the HTML5 specifications still includes the tag makes no mention 
of a horizontal rule.

Is this an oversight?


If this is posted to the incorrect component, 
I would appreciate it if it were moved to the correct one.
Thank you.

Sincerely,
DG12
