I want to understand how to redefine a heading so that
*	the heading starts at the top of a new page,
*	and a horizontal rule is added below the heading title, running the
width of the text area and whose thickness is configurable.

I have just reviewed section 2.2.2 in The LaTeX Companion 2nd edition where
emphasis is placed on using the @startsection command to reformat headings.
Example 2-2-9 shows how to add a horizontal rule above the heading title
using the following.


It is not clear to me how I can force a pagebreak and add a horizontal rule
below the heading text using the @startsection command. Is this possible?
Would it be better to just create a new command by wrapping commands around
the existing heading command. For example,


This new command works, but I am wondering if it is an advisable way to do
things. Any help would be appreciate. Thanks.
