Template:Clear/doc

This template adds <div style="clear:both;"></div>. {{clear}}: Makes content wait until existing content is completed in all columns. Often used to stop text from flowing next to unrelated images.

Usage[edit]

{{Clear}}

The template may also be substituted, but as the markup provided will be confusing to many editors, and this template provides documentation for itself, there is little justification for substitution.

Example without the {{clear}} template[edit]
