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
