Using hr in the middle of an article isn't part of my writing style and the hr
I have in my page template gets more complex styling than just color. I don't
use <font>, because in my writing, I usually don't feel a need to apply a font
based on the text but based on things that HTML has semantics for.

OTOH, I do feel the need to align stuff in tables contextually and not only
based on a th/td distinction.

due to authoring tool making this way more convenient)
