 I needed a short line in my HTML UI.  Turns out, you can do it with CSS. Here's the code that draws the specific line I needed:

<div
  style="height: 14px;
  color:white; background:white;
  position:absolute; left:77px; top:8px;
  transform:rotate(27deg);
  -ms-transform:rotate(27deg); /* IE 9 */
  -webkit-transform:rotate(27deg); /* Safari and Chrome */
  width:1px"/>
