it's not the best attitude to have - wiki content does not have to be

This is the *point* of semantics, as applied to information - "what I
mean", not "what I look like".
Great! You gave us a perfect reason why my proposed \- or \= is much much
better than <br style="clear:both;" />.
\= means: make a full break considering all elements above.
On a web page it would be <br style="clear:both;" /> on a book it would be
page break tag of Docbook-XML (or another book format as long as you have the
parser for it), on T-Shitrs maybe the "turn to backside tag" and on toilet
paper... na you don't want to turn to the backside but maybe to the next
So my suggest is about maintaining semantics. <br style="clear:both;" />
bad in wiki source code for your named reason of "what I look like" vs.
