CSS CLEAR

This property specifies whether the current element allows floated elements occuring earlier in the document to float along its sides. The values for this property indicate which sides of the element do not allow floating elements. If the current element has any floating sub-elements, the property does not apply to them.

Example
1
2
3
address {
  clear: both
}
1
<span style="clear: both">some test</span>

Possible Values

inherit: Explicitly sets the value of this property to that of the parent.

left: The current element is shifted such that the top edge of the top margin is below the bottom edge of any left-floated elements previously occuring in the document.
right: The current element is shifted such that the top edge of the top margin is below the bottom edge of any right-floated elements previously occuring in the document.
both: The current element is shifted such that the top edge of the top margin is below the bottom edge of any floated elements previously occuring in the document.
