Tables should inherit from the BODY element, but they don't in either IE4 or
Communicator.

TD, TH should inherit from the TABLE element, they do in IE4 but not in
Communicator.

To cover all bases use BODY, TH,TD{font-size:32pt;}

Play around with the following code(below signature) to see what I mean
