Preview shows hr lines differently

I noticed that two horizontal lines, with the same code, looked different in Sigil Preview. One line was thicker than the other.

But on my ereaders & in Calibre they were the same. Also the same in Sigil book view.

More of a curiosity, but I thought I would mention it.


html:

<h1>Title</h1>

<hr class="w50" />

<h2>Subtitle</h2>

<hr class="w50" />

css:

h1 { text-align:center; }

h2 { text-align:center; font-size:2em; }

hr.w50 { height:0.1em; border:white; background-color:black; width:50%; margin-left:25%; }


After testing I noticed it's the font-size element in h2 that makes the difference. If I set the size to 1em, the lines are the same. If I set it to something larger than 1, it gets thicker, but stays the same for any larger font-sizes.

(Sigil 0.9.10 on Linux)

Setting your height and border-thickness in pt or px (I know, I know... but this is *not* for setting text!) should give more consistent appearance. Anyway, that's how it seems to work for me.


Setting it in em will vary with font-size.

Code:
hr, .hr100
{
border-top:  2pt solid blue;
border-left: none;
border-right: none;
border-bottom: none;
height: 2pt;
margin-top: 1em;
margin-bottom: 1em;
margin-left:0;
margin-right:0;
}

Thank you GrannyGrump.

If I understand you correctly, you have found that it's a sort of best practice to use pt/px for hr? Considering how many very nice formatted books you have made, I will adopt that.

For this particular case, my guess is that there is a bug in the Sigil Previewer. I may be wrong, but that is the only place that does show the lines differently (compared to the ereaders and other software I tested with).

It doesn't matter much I guess, I just wanted to mention it since the amazing Sigil-duo seem to squash bugs in seconds.

(And if I did something wrong or "stupid" I hoped for feedback on that. Your post made my post worth it, thanks. )
