Angry Dashed lines auto removed if output type is mobi

I was trying to add some dash line between sections using ebook-convert while fetching news.

I put the following css spcs in extra_css variable,
Code:
.dash-line {
    border-bottom: 1px dashed rgb(0, 0, 0);
        border-bottom-width: 1px;
        border-bottom-style: dashed;
        border-bottom-color: rgb(0, 0, 0);
}
Then use
Code:
<div class="dash-line"></div>
to get a dashed line.
But it failed to appear when the output type is set to mobi, and it appears when the output
type is set to epub.

Kind of strange, how to fix it?

Thank you, Kovid, what if
Code:
 --mobi-file-type='both'
.
I was thinking that it's ebook-convert cleared the dashed line while processing, so this is not the case?

what's interesting is that a azw3 file is much larger than the 'same' mobi file, both are larger
than the epub file, any suggestion that could shrink it?
