Why not just use a straight horizontal rue? It's styling, not content,
and conveys no significant meaning.
I respectfully disagree - *works *are content, *editions *are contens
plus styling IMHO.
Most significant editions have different content, and PDFs can maintain
most of the styling of the original (but not the paper, the weight, gold
leaf, etc.). Once you start transcribing the text, you're creating a new
edition. How close you want to try and maintain the styling is something
that each Wikisource and each Wikisorcerer needs to decide, probably even
on a edition by edition basis.
In this case, a straight horizontal rule is likely as good as a curved
line, but that depends on details of the work and what the editors involved
