I have a data table that uses styles in the <table> and <td> tags.  Would these styles be considered inline styles and fail section 508?  Here is an example of my table:
><table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="margin-top: 0pt; border-collapse: collapse;">

These CSS rules are defined inside your markup (by means of the style attribute), so they are internal.
External stylesheets are added to web pages with the LINK element; see http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-CSS2-19980512/intro.html.
