This post is part of my Today I learned series in which I share all my web development learnings.

You may have use the hr element for styling when you needed a horizontal line in your designs. Today I came across a tweet by Will Boyd sharing that the hr elements comes with semantic meaning! 😲

From the spec:

The hr element represents a paragraph-level thematic break, e.g. a scene change in a story, or a transition to another topic within a section of a reference book.

Good to know!
