How to move beyond a floated object

Threaded View

If I insert some object with a style property of float:left; or similar,
such as an image (but not necessarily only an image), normally text will
flow around that object.  But in certain cases, I want the text to skip
beyond that object.  I tried <P> but that was no good; the new paragraph
was still beside the box.  How can I skip down to a line below the box?
Yes, I know that would leave a bunch of white space (depending on what I
hadn't used up).
