Yup.  Dropped it into the stylesheet and it worked like a champ.
Michael and Tim will never know what you spared them.

I tried Bill Lindsey's suggestion, too (thanks, Bill!), but it didn't
give the tables what they were looking for.  I think that it would
have worked in a non-table setting, though.
