Run the div as server control and do something like this

If i = 0 Then
            Me.div1.Attributes.CssStyle.Clear() 'Clear Css Styles
            Me.div1.Attributes.CssStyle.Add("Class", "secondCssClass") 'add the css class attribute
            Me.div1.Attributes.CssStyle.Add("Class", "firstCssClass")

        End If

of course this assumes you have 2 Css Classes named firstCssClass and secondCssClass

My solution based on a hybrid of the above comments:

            Dim divID As System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlGenericControl = Me.Master.FindControl("divID")
            divID.Attributes.Add("class", "classname")
