Can I use TDs with IDs and headers, instead of TH

If I use IDs and HEADERS to markup my complex data
tables, can I use TDs for the table cells that feature
the IDs? Or do I need to use THs?

<tr><td id="title">Title</td> (etc.) </tr>
<tr><td headers="title">MyStory</td> (etc.) </tr>

And, if I can use TDs in this scenario, will that
cause problems in any of the major screen readers?

By the way, thanks to everybody for your feedback on
my use of the TITLE attribute for tooltips. It was
very helpful.
