EN suggested: line 

This should be the accessability role description for a horizontal rule <hr> in HTML 4.x. In HTML 5.0 since you can no longer edit certain aspects of it it is called a Thematic Break line. However, it is still represented by a horizontal line separating sections of a website.
The important and relevant part of “horizontal rule” is in fact … horizontal, rule being too generic to be relevant in this case. 

More info:


I think the essence of both “Horizontal rule” and “Thematic break” are in their function of separation, regardless of their horizontal or thematic nature. Therefore, I think “separator” is an accurate way to describe <hr>, which is also specific enough to yield an authentic localization string (as opposed to the ambiguious “line” and “rule”).
