Hello,
    I am using sencha touch in a project.  I have encoded some icons in the css using Base64. The resulting icon classes work great in sencha touch. The problem is I would like to reuse some the icons using good ole html and css. I have seen examples like this that uses Base64.

<img alt="Embedded Image"
  src="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAADIA..." />

the problem is my icons are already setup as a class for sencha touch. like so..

       .favsIcon {-webkit-mask-box-image:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0K....
}

How do I call this class to display the icon in html? or even as a background image of another class? I want to avoid having to use the icon file if I don't have to.

Thanks

You can declare an "icon" class-ex:

.icon {
  width:100px;
  height:100px;
  background-image:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAADIA...);
}

Then to use it, you just assign that class to the element:
<div class="icon">...</div>

An element can have multiple classes. You just need to separate them with a space. Thus, you can "reuse" your "icon" class definition:
<div class="someClass someOtherClass icon">...</div>
