I have a custom tab in the backstage section of my ribbon xml. I would like to know if there is any way to put a separator (like the node used elsewhere in RibbonX) in a <TopItems> node. I have tried it and cant get it to validate.

I am using the Custom UI editor and Excel 2010.

Basically I want to create vertical space between items but yet keep them related to the group their are in.

The ssnippet below shows where I would like to put it.
<tab ....>
     <firstColumn>
                  <group ....>
                         <primaryItem>
                                      <button .... />
                         </primaryItem>
                         <topItems>
                                   <layoutContainer ....>
                                                    <dropDown ..../>
                                                    <SEPERATOR HERE>
                                                    <button .... />
                                   </layoutContainer>
                         </topItems>
                  </group>
     </firstColumn>
</tab>
