Details

BR tags in navigator look alot like margins. In fact, the presence of a BR will
cause the object that follows top-margin to be collapsed with the vertical
distance applied by the BR. (Examples include <BR CLEAR=ALL><P>)
java.sun.com exhibits this behavior (see j:/html/640-5.html)

I don't think BR tags should collapse...and I don't think they do in IE.
The BR element should not be treated as a special case. It is an element just
like any other (albeit empty, like <IMG> and <HR>).

You should simply give it its behaviour using CSS:

   BR:before { content: "\A"; }

This would result in the solving of all margin collapse issues, since it would
then act identical to all other elements.

This was mostly a note to myself about how one might treat br clear=... I don't
need the note anymore.
