>   <div class="test a">
>	This is a test.
>   </div>
>   works the same as...
>   <div class="a">
>	This is a test.
>   </div>
>   Why does the div work when you enter either "test a" or just "a" in the
>class field? As a random test, "cow a" works too.

Multiple classes. Example:
.red {color:red}
.blueback {background-color:blue}

<p class="red">Red text</p>
<p class="blueback">Text with a blue background</p>
<p class="red blueback">Red text with a blue background</p>

Doesn't work in IE :(
