  3. All HTML tags can be combined, such as:
  4. <b><centered><font size=3>Example Text</font></centered></b>
  5. If you combine tags, they must be nested (these numbers are "nested" <3><2><1> ... </1></2></3>)

The <hr> tag draws a line across the width of the page.  Use it for separating elements on a page, such as between two paragraphs or surrounding words in a question which can be used as a category.  The <hr> tag is always drawn on one line, excluding all text from the line.

If you want to make a category of questions, do this:

<hr>Transportation Questions<hr> - this displays the words Transportation Questions with a line above and one below the words.  Choose the None response if you use this in a question.
