What's with the clear: both, Blogger.com?

Since a few days Blogger.com has added a div at the beginning and the end of each <$BlogItemBody$>. Prefix:

<div style="clear:both;"></div>


<div style="clear:both; padding-bottom: 0.25em;"></div>

Thanks for messing my blogs up, Blogger.com. There is a way to fix quirks because of this. My <$BlogItemBody$> is inside a <div class="body"> (which is standard I think). The fix is a simple CSS rule:

div.body div {
  display: none;

Update 2005-06-30: You can prevent the extra styled div's by setting the 'Enable float alignment' option to 'No' in your settings. Thanks to Pogenwurst for pointing this out.

Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, I'm concerned with completely removing the tags to keep my blog conforming with W3C standards. Thanks anyway though.
