Using a strict Doctype (see attachment) that I believe to be correct, it seems child TDs dont inherit "font-size" from their parent TABLEs. Behaviour is seen in normal HTML as well as DOM-constructed HTML.
Created attachment 9097 [details] HTML document with strict doctype that shows some examples of TDs not inheriting font-size
DOCTYPE is invalid. It reads: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> ...it should read: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> ...note the quotes between the FPI and the DTD URI. (FPI = the "-//W3C" bit and DTD URI = the "http://" bit.) Marking INVALID.

Netscape's standard compliance QA team reorganised itself once again, so taking remaining non-tables style bugs. Sorry about the spam. I tried to get this done directly at the database level, but apparently that is "not easy because of the shadow db", "plus it screws up the audit trail", so no can do...
