Often while designing HTML pages, it's necessary to place one <HR> below another.  I found this necessary, for instance, while converting an old _Harvard Law Review_ article to HTML.  To keep the HTML version as close to the printed version as possible, I needed to place one horizontal line below the other.  However, just typing

<HR>
<HR>

produced two lines whose spacing looked very ugly.

Is there any way to control the spacing between <HR>s?  If not, I'd like to see something like:

<SPACING=x>
<HR>
<HR>
</SPACING>

One could put regular text between the <SPACING> tags.  One could place <SPACING> immediately after <BODY>, and </SPACING> immediately before </BODY>, in this way defining paragraph spacing for the entire document.

Is this idea feasible?  Thanks.
