WikiStyles don't allow one to write arbitrary CSS properties or HTML
attributes -- only the ones that are specifically enabled by 
PmWiki or a customization.

Close.  It would be

    $WikiStyleCSS[] = 'clear';   #enable the "clear" CSS property

and then in the markup %clear:both% will work (as well as 
%clear:left% and %clear:right%).

    %define=blockbreak clear=both%

but also one can do

    %define=clear clear=both%

and then %clear%, %clear=left%, %clear=right% all do what you would 
want them to do.  

The administrator can predefine the %clear% wikistyle with

    $WikiStyle['clear']['clear'] = 'both';

(this corresponds to %define=clear clear=both%).

Sorry for the terseness of this answer -- I'm on a flaky network
connection at the moment.  I can write more later if desired.
