...and over at http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/global.html#h-7.5.2, 
the HTML 4 spec says in section 7.5.2 about the 'class' attribute:

"This attribute assigns a class name or set of class names to an 
element.  [...] Multiple class names must be separated by white space 

XHTML 1.0 is basically HTML4-in-XML, so the same goes for that.
