I learn CSS and JS. While I was looking for syntax highlighting and I met with this classname, strange for me.

What do colon and semicolon mean in this position? and how can I put a own classname within this?

class="myclass brush:js; html-script:true;" doesn't work.

Thanks.

Where did you see this? Some context would be nice. Otherwise we can only guess.

Define "doesn't work". Please read ItDoesntWorkIsUseless.

style of "myclass" has no effect with: class="myclass brush:js; html-script:true;"

<pre class="brush:js;"> and other tags in head must be placed to syntax highlight with software syntaxhighlighter.

Looks like some program using class to hold information instead of using attributes or html5 data. Nothing special there.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
