Description

From the source:

%D Putting rules before and after a paragraph is very space
%D sensitive, but the next command handles that quite well. It
%D comes in two disguises:

Those two ‘disguises’ are \textrule and the \starttextrule environment. The command \setuptextrules is dedicated to controlling the behaviour of these.

Example
