ISSUE-33: default styles do not properly allow vertical-align to inherit on table elements

default styles do not properly allow vertical-align to inherit on table elements

State:
CLOSED
Product:
CSS2.1
Raised by:
Arron Eicholz
Opened on:
2008-04-11
Description:
thead, tbody, tfoot { vertical-align: middle }
td, th { vertical-align: inherit }

This doesn't make much sense without this missing rule:

tr { vertical-align: inherit }

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2008Feb/0283.html

Firefox, Safari specify the style for the 'tr' element

I recommend that we update the default styles to include the 'tr' rule.
