For Netscape 6.1+, I believe the answer to be yes, the lack of a
DOCTYPE will put the browser into quirks mode and it will not inherit
font styles (other than font-family) into tables. This is likely to
also be the case in IE6. However, it's possible to stay in quirks
mode and still get proper font inheritance into tables. See
<http://devedge.netscape.com/viewsource/2002/table-inherit/> for an
explanation. If IE6 properly supports 'inherit', then the solution
described there will also work in IE6.
