[Pro] Auto Clearfix?

Would somebody please explain what the Auto Clearfix action does and must it be applied to every item that uses a float? Also, is it possible to apply the Auto Cleafix action as a page action or is it item specific?

Just discovered that Auto Clearfix appears to be a Page Action. Why would I want to apply or not apply it to all unfloated elements?

Floated divs can collapse to zero height. Which causes problems with an inline built site because you want everything to stack up and support itself down the page (roughly explained here). You could select the from the inspector palette overflow: hidden which does the same job to stop a floated and its parent div from collapsing.

Applying to unfloated elements will prevent margins between inflow items from collapsing. This means if you have an item with 20px bottom margin followed by an item with 20px top margin the total space between them will be 40px. The default browser behaviour is to collapse the smallest margin, so the total distance would be 20px.
