   HTML4 definition of the 'class' attribute.</a>
   This meta data profile defines some 'class' attribute values (class names) 
   and their meanings as suggested by a 
   <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-htmllink-970328#profile">
   draft of "Hypertext Links in HTML"</a>.
   All values are defined according to the semantics defined in the 
   <a href="http://microformats.org/wiki/hcalendar">
   hCalendar specification</a> 
   and thus in 
   <a href="http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2445.txt">RFC 2445</a>.
