I followed that thread and found this example:

<p#myid.myclass1.myclass2>...</p> is equivalent of
<p id="myid" class="myclass1 myclass2">...</p>

...but we can't have that because an ID may contain a period.  We'd
have to do something like put class names first to prevent <p
id="myid.myclass1.myclass2">, or have spaces between them.
