I still don't see how MathJax honors 'the |mtable| element sets 
|displaystyle| to "false" within the table elements.' when the attribute 
is absent. If the inherited value is true, it will set the value to true 
with your interpretation. If the inherited value is false, then there is 
no need to "set" the value to false. So this sentence from the spec is 
irrelevant and it would make more sense to say that the displaystyle 
value on the mtable is inherited (unless it is modified by an explicit 
displaystyle attribute on the mtable). This is what Gecko used to do.
