Generally yes. I don't think the line itself can clear the float, since the
height of the line will be the tallest height it contains (barring
line-height settings). So, even though the small text might clear the float
the line will still wrap. At least, that has been my experience. Since that
is based on the start edge of the line which shouldn't change with line
height, the line won't change width based on height.
