Re: Inheritance of column attributes

Why should column attributes be inherited over row attributes?  I don't 
think it makes sense to set a fixed preference for either.  An ideal 
style sheet proposal would let the author of the document determine which 
takes precedence on a table-by-table basis, rather than fixing it 
arbitrarily.  It wouldn't be much harder to do this than to support 
either fixed-precedence option, so this should certainly be a feature of 
more advanced versions of CSS.
