Not the way the styles are currently set up.   The style was set up so 
that you just have to declare the table to be striped, and the contents 
follow suit. This avoids having to declare a class on all the nodes in 
the table.

The "proper" way to do this (i.e.in a pure HTML page) would be to have a 
page-specific or table-specific style.

One possible low-key suggestion for javadoc is to detect the presence of 
nominated files in the doc-files subdirectory for a package, and include 
a link to that stylesheet (in addition to system stylesheet(s)) in the 
docs for the types in that package.
