No, that is not correct. If I use the following, it will create a custom
horizontal line combination.

\noindent\rule{\textwidth}{.5pt}

\rule[.6\baselineskip]{\textwidth}{3pt}

There are other combinations that I can tie together to get the effect I
want. I was wondering if there is a package that would make this easier.

Hi,

You mean something like this?

\documentclass{article}

\thispagestyle{empty}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[1]

\noindent\rule[0.5ex]{\linewidth}{1pt}

\lipsum[2]

\end{document}

Cheers

Alan

I am looking for a package that provides custom horizontal lines. In MS Word
and other word processors, there is an option to insert various horizontal
lines, often used as page or section dividers. I cannot find a latex package
that provides that sort of function. Does one exist, or is there a
relatively simple way to construct a custom horizontal line in latex?
