I am Moana of Motunui. You killed my father. Prepare to die!
tr is the row, but td is the actual cells in the row.
As far as I can tell, the only difference is that I didn't have the "td" in after the "tr.odd" and "tr.even" parts so... what is the "td" for? (I'm assuming "inherit" is just taking the values I've set for #game_frame, which are the same as the ones there, so I don't think that is making a difference).

Basically the more specific you style something the harder it is to override. If you have say:
div table tr td { background }
div table tr { background }
any tr with a td in it is still going to take the first style over the second since it's more specific.

If you run Firefox you can get an add-on called Firebug that makes it really easy to test CSS on your page

Basically you can "inspect" any element on the page and it'll list every style effecting it - you can edit it and see the results live (it's temporary, refreshing the page loses anything you change) - after you get something you like copy-paste it over live.
if you run firefox you have no business testing CSS
IIRC, you can get add-ons that will allow you to imitate the way pages are displayed in other browsers.

E: oh god my eyes
If you run firefox you have no intention of browsing, just staring at those horrible load times and oversized toolbar.
Not all of its users are dumb enough to use their browser as a jeepney.

Some just want to browse the damn web.
Even without any plugins or toolbar additions it's still got a hug tool bar. That and it's sort of ugly to look at. I tried to use it but couldn't get past the toolbar Tetris (I think that came with the browser too...Who the hell needs that in the tool bars!?)
