Horizontal Rules and Page Breaks
Asciidoctor recognizes Markdown horizontal rules. The motivation here is to ease migration of Markdown documents to AsciiDoc documents.
To avoid conflicts with AsciiDoc’s block delimiter syntax, only 3 repeating characters (
*) are recognized.
As with Markdown, whitespace between the characters is optional.
--- - - - *** * * *
A macro definition for the Markdown horizontal rules is included in the AsciiDoc compatibility file so they can be recognized by the
asciidoc command as well.
