CSS :not() with Multiple Classes

Say you want to select an element when it doesn't have a certain class. That's what the :not() selector is for.

body:not(.home) {
  
}

But what if there are multiple classes you want to avoid?

There are no logical combinators with :not(), like and or or, but you can chain them, which is effectively like and.

body:not(.home):not(.away):not(.page-50) {
  
}

The :not() selector doesn't add any specificy by itself, but what is inside does, so :not(.foo) adds the same weight as .foo does.
