Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The markdown help page currently states:

Horizontal Rules

Insert a horizontal rule <hr/> by putting three or more hyphens, asterisks, or underscores on a line by themselves:

Rule #1
---
Rule #2
*******
Rule #3
___

However, the first one (hyphens) is incorrect. It renders a header. Indeed the help page states that too, one section further up.

Hyphens with spaces in between render a rule though, so I recommend to change it so that it reads:

Insert a horizontal rule <hr/> by putting three or more hyphens, asterisks, or underscores on a line by themselves. Hyphens must have a space between them:

Rule #1
- - -
Rule #2
*******
Rule #3
___

edit: I see, you mean the help page should have spaces too.

OK, I agree, checking that change in now.

I believe OP means the help page is wrong in that there aren't blank lines around the hyphens. – kennytm Aug 14 '10 at 20:48
