I suggest you ask the people who wrote it. I was certainly puzzled when
I read it, and there is nothing in the CSS1 Recommendation that describes
inheritance not working for tables.

I think what they might mean in practice is something like

 their parent elements"

If this is not what is meant, perhaps someone from Netscape would care to
