Data tables: Can I use id attribute in TD?

Hi all,
Must I use TH as the first row in the data table? I can't seem to override the centered/bold styling on the TH & it looks wrong in my layout. I was hoping to use TD id="name" in the first row & TD headers="name" in succeeding rows. Will this be properly read by screen readers? If not, does anyone know why this style isn't taking..
TH {
font-weight : normal;
text-align : left;
font-family : Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
