I have no idea how this trick has eluded me for so long, but it is possible to use two classes on the same DOM object. For example to combine a class called “TopNav” and a class called “SelectedNav” all you have to do is call them both with code like this
<div id=”HomeNavItem” class=”TopNav SelectedNav”>Home</div>
In other words, you’re just putting them in the same class declaration. I’ve been doing this for years and I’ve never done that before.

This is really an important feature of CSS, good to have come across it here.
Even though this important information is accompanied by a meaningful sentence like “I’ve been doing this for years and I’ve never done that before.”
