Parsing with multiple classes is not a big deal.

XPath 2.0 (not very supported yet) provides regular expression  
support that can overcome this.

We have a javascript parser for xFolk that uses regular expressions  
along with DOM walking to parse xFolk entries.  It works on sites  
that have multiple classes like http://de.lirio.us.  The script is here:
