change css space styling for table headers

This page (as well as helpful insights  by other users) was very helpful for changing basic Header styles:

It provides the following helpful starter: 

body {
font-family: Times, "Times New Roman", serif;
font-size: 14px;
.wiki-content p,
.wiki-content table,
.wiki-content tr,
.wiki-content td,
.wiki-content th,
.wiki-content ol,
.wiki-content ul,
.wiki-content li {
font-size: 14px;

But I haven't been able to find explanations for using those styles listed.

Some basic page content that I need to alter syles for are:

1) Table headers and detail rows (I found that .wiki-content tr, and .wiki-content td, both do this BUT for headers and detail rows together. I was not able to split them up).

2) Space footer


Thanks for any ideas.

1) Regarding table styling:

  • Header rows can be targerted using .wiki-content th  
  • Additional cell can be targeted with .wiki-content td
  • Only use .wiki-content tr if you want to impact all rows in the table, for instance if you want to force a minimum height.  The td and th elements are nested in tr.

2) For footer, you should be able to use #footer .footer-body
