    That's a broswer bug, and it doesn't hold true in more recent 
browsers (yay!).  For example, NS6.x, IE5/Mac, and IE6/Win will all 
permit inheritance of any inheritance-permitting property to any 
element, including TD elements.  By which I mean, if a property can 
be inherited (a subset of CSS properties can't be), then it will be 
inherited by any element.
