It’ll just add a . in your content.

You’ll usually find that just adding a “.” is usually used for a clear fix hack, to clear floating elements.

You can’t apply content to the original element. content is used only for generate pseudo elements. So, there would be only div:before and div:after allowed to place content

Not my favorite method of clearing floats, but if it works for you, great! :)
