The clear property is used to cancel the effect of float. Possible values for the clear property are:
left: Keep the left side clear.
right: Keep the right side clear.
both: Keep both sides clear.
none: Do not keep either side clear.
Let's take a look at a modified example from the float page:
the following HTML,
<span id="leftfloat"><img src="yp.jpg"></span>This example <span id="clearleft"> illustrates how clear:left breaks the float property. </span>
This example illustrates how clear:left breaks the float property.
Notice that once the clear:left style is applied, the float:left style no longer applies, and all the text following the clear:left style appear below the image.
