Hi everyone,

I can't seem to change the color of my horizontal rules?

This doesn't work:

hr {
color: #CC0000;
}

Why not, and what's the solution?

Thanks

Nick

I have used this property on <hr>, however it only seems to work on IE. Mozilla and Opera do not seen to support it, and that may be because they're being strict about the definition:

This property describes the foreground color of an element's text content...

You can also define an empty div which only has a top or bottom border and use this in place of an hr. This way you can also have dotted and dashed hr's.
