CTAN Mark­down: Hor­i­zon­tal Rules

If a line con­tains only three or more of the char­ac­ters - (mi­nus), * (star), or _ (un­der­score) then the com­plete line is ren­dered as hor­i­zon­tal rule. It is re­quired that the first char­ac­ter of the line is one of those char­ac­ters. After­wards whites­pace char­ac­ters in such a line are ig­nored and are not con­sid­ered rel­e­vant.

Note that --- in­ter­feres with the in­ter­pre­ta­tion of sec­tions. Thus the line be­fore such a hor­i­zon­tal rule may not start with a let­ter.
