You can define special rules for TR's and TD's within specific tables using
the constructs of CSS.  Here's an example:

<table id="oddball">
<tr><td> ... </td></tr>
<tr><td> ... </td></tr>

Because the table has an id, you can reference only it's TR's and TD's quite
easily in your CSS:

#oddball tr { ... }
#oddball td { ... }

Does this help?
