How to Add a Line With Text in HTML

The HTML "hr" tag lets you add a line in your content page with text above and below the line. The "hr" tag adds a separator between two lines of text. You can add an "hr" tag anywhere in the body of your web page. It's a convenient way to add a line with text without the need to create or add an image.
