How to make an hr invisible

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

I wanted to have a separation between sibling elements on my HTML page.

One idea I had was to wrap them in section tags, or in a div, and apply a margin on top of bottom of that element.

Another approach was to not touch the overall HTML structure, and instead put a tag to be a divider.

So I used an hr tag, which semantically represents a thematic break between paragraph-level tags.

And I styled it in this way, to make it invisible but still take space:

hr {
  margin-top: 100px;
  border: none;
Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching Summer 2024. Join the waiting list!
