The BR tag is used to force line breaks within text. Normally, linebreaks are treated as a space by browsers (except inside the PRE tag). The optional CLEAR attribute is used when you have an IMG image in your text. If that image uses ALIGN=LEFT or ALIGN=RIGHT, the text will flow around it. If you have text you want below the image, you can do this with <BR CLEAR=LEFT> or CLEAR=RIGHT to force scrolling down to a clear left or right margin, respectively. Using CLEAR=ALL will scroll down until both margins are clear. CLEAR=NONE is the default, and does nothing.
