HTML and CSS Reference
The size attribute is deprecated in HTML 4 and XHTML because you can
achieve its effects with appropriate use of stylesheets.
184.108.40.206. The noshade attribute
You may not want a 3D rule line, preferring a flat, 2D rule. Just add the
noshade attribute to the <hr> tag to eliminate the 3D effect. No value is
required with HTML. Use noshade="noshade" with XHTML.
Note the difference in appearance of a "normal" 3D rule versus the
noshade 2D one in Figure 5-3 . (We've also exaggerated the rule's thick-
ness for obvious effect, as evident in the source HTML fragment.)
