Sementics and over thinking.

The end of the_content() needs to be cleared to protect the content of the site below it.

  Subject: [theme-reviewers] Clearing Floats

  I've noticed on several reviews, the recommendation to add a "clearfix" <div> beneath the_content()/the_excerpt().

  I'm wondering: should we *really* be making this recommendation? I've always considered an empty div whose sole purpose for existence is to ensure that floats are cleared to be a method of last resort.

  I'm just wondering, since we don't make many other markup-practice recommendations with respect to conformance to the Guidelines. Might it be better simply to state "ensure that floats introduced by the_content()/the_excerpt() are cleared"?
