Have you noticed that all of the rules above are open and
not solid? This is because the default for a rule is "shaded"
to get the supposed 3D effect. If you want a solid rule, use
the "no shade" attribute in the tag. Of course,
this only applies to rules that are more than 1 pixel in height
size="2" noshade> not
Now this is where things get a bit frustrating in terms of browser
compatability. Until Netscape 6x, it did not support the "color"
tag for a horizontal rule, whereas IE has supported it since
3x. Earlier versions of Netscape will just default to the gray
color we have seen so far.
Note: The "noshade" attribute is overwritten
when "color" is used

use any hexadecimal color you wish
