Differences between block and table in the clearfix solution?
I notice that when I changed display: table to display: block in the clearfix code, the dimensions of the ::after pseudo element are different.
Inspecting the element in the developer tools, I see that using block results in the ::after element having a width, but no height. Using table, the ::after element has no height or width. Will this make a difference in the responsiveness of the page?

The clearfix element doesn't need any specific dimensions and won't contain anything, so either method should be fine.
The use of "table" is a legacy from back when it was needed to get consistent behavior across browsers.
