Well, the only "strange" part of the syntax here is the usage of a
namespace in a class name. But that's not that strange. Just have a look
at the w3c ARIA docs and f.ex. http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-role/ (the
role attribute module). So using a namespace prefix in a class name is
possible. But it is only useful in xml (xhtml) documents, since
namespaces are not usable in html.

That's all.
