1. What about CLASSes that have no styling meaning? For example, I
might want to use <DIV CLASS="transient"> to indicate that a
document block is transient, and should not be indexed by a search
engine. How can I do this so that it does not mess up stylesheet
I believe that the original HTML3 spec for CLASS allowed multiple
classes, e.g., <DIV CLASS="transient chapter blue">. That is, one
would specify the declared value as NAMES, as is currently found in
the I18N I-D.
2. What about the CLASS for an entire document -- is it sufficient
to have <BODY CLASS="..."> or is it useful to also specify CLASS for
It would depend on why you are using CLASS: to denote presentation
semantics or some other semantics.
