td, thFirefox/Netscape/NN 6 IE 4 Chrome/Safari/DOM 1  


The td and th objects reflect the td and th elements. From an HTML structure viewpoint, the two elements have different purposes within a table; but from a scripting perspective, the elements share the same properties and methods. A cell is a cell.


While a table cell element may inherit a number of visual properties from containers (e.g., a td element appearing to pick up the bgColor of a tbody or tr element), those inherited property values are not automatically assigned to the td object. Therefore, just because a cell may have a yellow background color doesn't mean its bgColor property is set at all. Due to incomplete implementation, IE 4 for the Macintosh does not offer complete scripted access to these element objects.
