The attribute can be used to move down past floating images on either margin. <BR CLEAR=LEFT> moves down past floating images on the left margin, <BR CLEAR=RIGHT> does the same for floating images on the right margin, while <BR CLEAR=ALL> does the same for such images on both left and right margins.
<P> You should always end the terminal session with the command <BR> <KBD>logout</KBD> <BR> or some other operation with the same effect. </P>
You should not use BR elements just in order to force the text to be of some particular width which you regard as suitable. It is much better to let browsers do such formatting according to each browsing situation.
See notes on division into lines and the use of blanks and tabs.
Some people use multiple BR elements to force vertical white space. This need not work in all browsers. If you wish to force empty vertical space, consider using a suitable PRE element.
