ePub to MOBI - losing horizontal rules

I'm amusing myself with a little bit of writing and being of a technical bent, I write a raw docbook XML, and have custom stylesheets that give a very good .ePub file.

When using Calibre to convert .ePub to .MOBI for my kindle, the conversion process loses the little horizontal rules I put between paragraphs when there's a timejump. The offending html is

<hr style="width:33%;text-align:center;"/>

Is Calibre likely to be stripping this out? Can I get it to leave it there?

Thanks for any help
Stuart

I'm not seeing a problem using calibre 0.8.48 on Windows. Typical of calibre conversions, the widths are narrower that spec'd with 33% yielding something more like 16-20% and with wider vertical spacing (all below the HR on Kindle 3 and evenly distributed on Kindle Fire).

When I convert using KindleGen via Kindle Previewer widths are closer to the percentage spec'd and there is no extra vertical spacing.

I no case, though, am I finding the HRs omitted. I tested with the inline Style you list and with a <STYLE> in the <HEAD> section and both worked.
