Start text on new line after right justified image

I'm a new instructional designer at Lasell College.  We're exploring simple* methods for aligning figures and text on a Page without resorting to tables.  When using left or right justified images (e.g. style="float: right;") in Page design, is there a way to force the next block of text to start below the image?  The method I used to use in HTML is deprecated ( and we’re not going to use CSS.  Maybe <div>?

* I'm comfortable with ul, br, align, float, border, padding, width, etc.  I can probably figure out div.  Whatever we do has to be do-able by the HTML and/or Rich Text editors.

HTML clear being deprecated shouldn't stop you from using CSS clear. HTML clear was deprecated because clear is better in CSS. You're already using CSS in style="float: right;" for your image, why not use style in the text?

...and the style attribute and clear work in the RCE.

<img alt="" src="" style="float: right;" />
<p style="clear: right; text-align: left;">
...and the style attribute and clear work in the RCE.</p>‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

Is this what you're looking for, or did I miss it?
