Well, there are two things about it: The DSSSL standard allows for this
construct easily, as you can use e.g. the center header/footer to contain
the rule plus some text beneath and use the left and right footers just
normal. Who said a rule had to be displayed?!

I don't know what the backends in OpenJade will do about it, sorry. Just
know it works since my pdf backend does it. ;)

P.S.: Whenever such questions arise, it should be statet what target format
is desired. When looking at the RTF format itself and the post-processing
apps, I am not really astonished when some things don't work like
expected... :-)
