# 2.4.2. The hr element
#
# thematic separator. break. transition. hinge realignment. reconstruction,
# refinement, remodeling, reversal, revision, revolution. Maybe an 'html
# respite' or a 'hypertext rest'? .

I like "transition" a lot. "Hinge realignment" seems a little too obscure. :)

*flips through the H section of her English-Chinese dictionary, it being
  the only dictionary on hand around here*

How about "Hint tRansition"?

Other semi-useful H words include: hold, hook, horizon ...
"Hint" seems the most appropriate, I think.
