Is it possible to specify a vertical margin for \rule or \hrule?
When I say

abc
\hrule
def

the line "touches" the text above and below, so I would like it to have a margin of about 1mm.

TeX doesn't insert interline glue around rules. You need to add the vertical space yourself

abc

\vskip1mm
\hrule
\vskip1mm

def
