I don't know if this is the issue for you, but sometimes rules don't display 
correctly onscreen because of the monitor's resolution or screen 
magnification. Let's say the pixels on your screen are 1 point apart, and 
you have a 0.5 pt rule. At 100% magnification, It has to be rounded up or 
down to display . So either you get a fat 1-pixel rule or an invisible 
0-pixel rule on screen. Zoom in, though, and you'll see that everything is 
alright because it now takes multiple pixels to display the same line and 
less or no rounding is used. Maybe you just need to view your rules at a 
higher percentage magnification, or upgrade to a higher resolution monitor 
for more accurate display?
