Yes and no.  An element can belong to multiple classes, an element may inherit some styles from its parent, and a style rule may be applied to multiple classes.  Otherwise the answer is probably "no".

Hmm okay. I have this problem:

<div class="div1">
<div class="div2">
<p>Some text</p>
<p>a lot of text</p>
</div>
</div>

Only div2 is adjusting it´s height depending on how much text there is. I want both divs to do the same thing.

Is it possible?

if div1 has a height defined you can match the height with div2 by using height:100%;

You're welcome?

If ".div2" is floated then you need to tell its parent to contain it. Floating the parent of the floated element(s) is a good simple option in some cases and in others the PIE/Aslett approach works well.

Oops. Typo. I didn't mean that first sentence to end in a question mark. It should be just:

You're welcome.
