"The idea of using images or tables to replicate the behaviour of the
<hr> tag is pretty viral in itself so I'd have to say that your
anti-virus software can't handle the most common type of virus
encountered on the internet (the memetic virus)."

Well, technically, <hr> is a pretty presentational, legacy-type element.
Based on that premise, one could formulate an argument that using an image
would be more structure-oriented than using an <hr>.

Just my two cents.
