The <HR> tag

In HTML4, the HR tag does not contain any attributes that let you specify the
color.  However, IE seems to allow you to set a color attribute (IE also lets
you control the color with style sheets).  Changing the color of an HR seems
like it would be a very common thing.  I'm just wondering why this hasn't been
added to the HTML specs?  Is there some better way to create a colored
horizontal rule that I don't know about?

More info on the HR tag available here:
