Context breaks denote a break in the continuity of the narrative. It represents a shift in thought, time, location, or similar in a work of fiction or non-fiction. These changes are typically represented by a large blank space between paragraphs, which sometimes including asterisms and other decorations (traditionally when the shift occurs immediately at the bottom of a print page where it might not be apparent).
Often images are used to represent context breaks. Images are a suboptimal way to indicate a context change because they carry no semantic information.
For all context breaks, remove decorative image or content break and insert horizontal line.
This will convert to the <hr class="transition"> tag in EPUB.
