Doubt regarding Attributes

Hello, I am new to HTML, I have a small doubt regarding attributes, Should I use specific name or any variable to change specific thing ? For example : If I want to change width of horizontal line, Should I must use width = "50px" or can I use something = "50px"? In detail : SoloLearn Code : <hr width = "50px"> My code : < hr something = '50px'> Note : I must have tested it, But people clarifing doubts is the best way to learn for me !..

No programming languages don't consider fixed syntax as variables. that would be like saying you could write a for loop by doing apple( var i = 0; i < 10; i ++) {} the attributes in html are the same. they are fixed names that are a part of the W3C standard for the language.

if you want to change the width you say width="50px" what else would you use to change the width?

no. it doesn't make sense. if you want to change the width why would you say blue="50px" or if you want to alter the color why would you say camel="red"?
