Hello Experts,

when I visit a site, the root element <html> has a sub element called class.
example below:

<html class="js no-touch svg wf-franklinitcprobold-n4-active wf-franklinitcprolight-n4-active wf-georgiapro-n4-active wf-georgiaproblack-n4-active wf-georgiaprocond-n4-active wf-georgiaprolight-n4-active wf-georgiaprosemibold-n4-active wf-active" lang="en" data-useragent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/37.0.2062.122 Safari/537.36 OPR/24.0.1558.64" data-platform="Win32">

Open in new window


What does it mean and how does it get set?

Thanks for your help....

Regards,
