DUers, need help figuring out the name of something.
What I'm looking for is the name of those little mini images used in books to separate out parts of the same chapter into sub-parts. The images are usually small, center aligned, and often look like little ass-antlers.

What are those things called?

I actually really need to find this out and it's proving damned difficult to search on 'thingy that separates chapter bits'

1. I tried to think of it...
but after reading 'ass antlers' I seem to be having a little trouble concentrating.

5. I've never seen anything but asterisks used for that purpose
but I have a lot of books here and will search assiduously for ass antlers.

6. It's not just called a 'section seperator" or "chapter seperator"?
You mean this little thing, right?
