Lets say we have a row with one cell having some special property:

    <td>nothing special<td><td>nothing special...

    <td>nothing special<td><td class="special">I'm special...

I'd (well, someone else would) like to change the row color.

I can think of no way in CSS to do this. Is there any CSS/HTML way in
any modern browsers to do this? Have I missed something?

I know this can be done in code, either client or server side...
