Actually, it attaches the attribute to h1 and h2, that is,
heading levels less than 3:

    <xsl:if test="$css.decoration != '0'">
      <xsl:if test="$hlevel&lt;3">
        <xsl:attribute name="style">clear: both</xsl:attribute>

I don't know. Ask Norm.  8^)

You can turn it off by setting $css.decoration to zero.
That parameter's function is to insert certain style
attributes in some HTML elements.  If you are using a
complete CSS stylesheet, you should probably turn that
parameter off anyway.
