The C in CSS stands for cascading.  If I have two separate classes that have all the same attributes except a few, I can specify it like this:

h1, h2 {
  font-style: italic;
  font-weight: bold;
  color: blue;
  border-bottom: 2px solid black;
}
h1 {
  font-size: 2em;
}
h2 {
  font-size: 1.5 em;
}

Then, h1 and h2 tags will have all the same font and color types, and just different sizes.  Is this what you mean?  Basically, you may separate any number of selectors with commas in your CSS declaration.

If you mean having two different classes apply to the same element, you use a space seperated list:

<p class="one two"></p>

If you mean including one css file inside another you can use @import as webtrans showed.

@import url("mystyle.css");
