They are just css classes that are used to style the elements. For example oe_highlight in a button makes it red.

I don't think there is a documented list of all available css classes. However, if you are using Google Chrome you can right-click on an element, for example a button, on a page inside OpenERP and select "Inspect element". From there you can see what css classes have been applied to the button and what definitions (e.g. margins, font sizes, paddings...) the class contains. There is also a similar extension for Firefox called Firebug.

You can also look through the css files inside the core modules, e.g. addons/base/static/src/css/modules.css, and see what classes they provide.

wow is it....nice....then how about oe_inline,oe_link,"oe_subtotal_footer oe_right",oe_subtotal_footer_separator oe_inline,oe_edit_only oe_link,oe_clear these things i find in sale order.....where can i get this details in any openerp guides???

Sorry, I haven't worked with rml reports so I don't know the answer to that.
