Hi there,

I know this discussion has been and gone a number of times and was 
wondering if it ever gained any traction. Will there be a way to 
determine more precisely what an element (floated or otherwise) can clear?

It may well have been suggested already, apologies if so, but would 
adding the ability to put in a CSS selector as a value of the 'clear' 
rule be a good solution?

For example:

div#float {
float: left;
}

div#clear {
clear: '#float';
}

Best,
Rob
