That seems like a controversial suggestion, the div is clearly
self-collapsing so must have a collapsed margin value of 0. Can you
explain why its top and bottom margins do not collapse with each

 <div id="self-collapsing-with-clearance" style="clear:
both;margin-top: -40px; margin-bottom:40px;"></div>
