Using br To Insert Line Breaks In HTML: Here's How
What does <br clear="""> do?
Was used to ensure that line breaks "cleared" floated or aligned elements above them. Deprecated.


The clear attribute was used to ensure that a line break appearing in text wrapped around an image (using the deprecated align attribute would clear the image, causing the next bit of content after the <br> to appear below the image. This and most other presentational attributes have been deprecated in HTML5. Use CSS instead.

br.clear {  clear: both; }
