in thread HTML change for Other Users

UPDATE: Don't know if it applies to PM's home-grown tags, styles, etc, but that would not be legal in w3c .css.

Only a single class is allowed within the tag it "modifies."

See Ven'Tatsu's below. He is correct and my statement was wrong. (Next para is still true, but less relevant to css vers > 2.0

<sometag class="1" style="2; 3; 4;">

is allowed, but 2, 3 and 4 must be defined css elements. I'n not aware of any good way to make them refer to "roll-your-owns."

UPDATE: However, read also the note at the end of §5.8.3 at

Typical (and ugly) workarounds involve creating compound styles

.c { text-align: center; } .cb { text-align: center; font-weight: bold; } .cbr { text-align: center; font-weight: bold; color: red; background-color: transparent; } .cbri (or whatever, ad nauseum)...

or the even-uglier use of multiple <span> tags; eg

<p class="c"><span class="b"><span class="r">fubar whatever.... </span +></span></p>

UPDATE: To my mind the "compound" style declaration above is on the same order of ugliness as the multi-classing in w3c's pages cited in this node and in Ven'Tatsu's. It may, however, be more readable.
