Yes, this worked, however, as you indicated, there is no vertical
space between them which results in a visually thick hrule.  I ended
up doing something like:

\hbox to \hsize{\vbox{\hrule width \hsize}}

This seems to place the hrule correctly and repeated use of it
produces lines that are spaced with the baseline appropriately.

Not sure if there is a better way to do this...
