html pages generated by javadoc now have <HR> at the top of the page.
It doesn't seem to add any value to the page.

This bug was fixed as a part of the 6851834 where an HTML document structure was implemented in JDK 7. This bug is not reproducible in the latest versions.

EVALUATION This change occured when 6227616 added the "-top" option. Any "-top" text appears at the top of the page, then <HR>, then the rest of the page. It's likely unintentional that <HR> gets added even when "-top" wasn't used. In com/sun/tools/doclets/formats/html/HtmlDocletWriter.java see the printTop method. If configuration.top is "", perhaps the <HR> should be omitted.
