Extending a style class

Is it possible to extend a style class?
for example i have to classes
.common {
color:red;
}
.commonFont {
font-family:Arial;
font-size:8pt;
}
I need the class commonFont also to have the properties of the class common.
How can this be done?

Yes and no. It's possible for an element to inherit styles from parent elements. For example, if you have a <h1 class="mystyles"> and <h2> inside a <div>, you can apply all the styles of <div> to the <h1> with:
div h1{
your styles
}
or better yet:
div .mystyles{

Another way is with "selectors".
