Excellent!  That was exactly what I wanted to know.  Do you know if there are
any UA limitations to this implementation (for example, will this method work
properly in both IE and Netscape)?  Also, do you know where I could find this in
the CSS specs?
Thanks alot!

Yes, you can. The class attrribute takes a space separated list of class
names. The class attribute is a general way of describing set membership of
an element. Elements can be in multiple sets.
