CSS bug in IE 6??

Dear everybody

I wonder that the problem I met was IE's bug or not. I made sample HTML pages as below. 

=================
Case 1
=================

<body>

<table border="1" width="100%" style="font-family:Wingdings; font-size:50pt; color:red;">
 <tr>
  <td>aa
  <table border="1" width="100%">
   <tr>
    <td>This is a test.</td>
   </tr>
  </table>
  </td>
 </tr>
</table>

</body>

At this sample, the "font-family" is inherited the nested table. The "font-size" and the "color", however, are not inherited even these are "Inherite" properties.  

=================
Case 2
=================

<body style="font-family:Wingdings; font-size:50pt; color:red;">

<table border="1" width="100%">
 <tr>
  <td>aa
  <table border="1" width="100%">
   <tr>
    <td>This is a test.</td>
   </tr>
  </table>
  </td>
 </tr>
</table>

</body>

When I use the style to the <Body> like the sample, the "font-family" and the "color" are inherited. 


I don't know why IE render the sample HTMLs like that. Does anybody give me the answer or has any document about the reason?

Best Regard
