Separator Line

Last Updated 09.28.03

General Description

A separator line is used to divide contextual information and/or static content from changing content within a page. The separator line is also commonly used to divide a persistant component (which provides contextual information to a page) from the rest of the contents on a page. For instance, the Locator Element: Train component uses the separator line component, and the Quick Links bar uses the separator line component.
