CLASS=WARNING

conveys some indication about the information content of the 
element.

CLASS=2dpie

gives precisely no indication about the information content of the 
element; rather, it conveys information about the visual appearance 
(or what we'd like it to be, anyway) of the element, which is not 
what HTML is all about. 

Ciao,
