I have the following table css file

table {
      width: 100%;
      color: #212424;
      margin: 0 0 1em 0;      
      font: 80%/150% "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", "Lucida Sans", Lucida, Helvetica, sans-serif;
}
table, tr, th, td {
      margin: 0;
      padding: 0;
      border-spacing: 0;
      border-collapse: collapse;
}
caption {
      width: 100%;
      height: 39px;
      font-size: 0;
      line-height: 0;
      text-indent: -5000em;
      background: url(caption.gif) no-repeat 98% 0;
}
caption:hover {
      background-position: 98% 100%;
}

/* HEADER */

thead {
      background: #524123;
}
thead tr th {
      padding: 1em 0;
      text-align: center;
      color: #FAF7D4;
      border-bottom: 3px solid #A5D768;
}

/* FOOTER */

tfoot {
      color: #fff;
      background: #524123;
}
tfoot tr th, tfoot tr td {
      padding: .2em .6em;
      border-top: 2px solid #A5D768;
}
tfoot tr th {
}
tfoot tr td {
      text-align: right;
}

/* BODY */

tbody tr td {
      background: #DDF0BD url(bg_cell.gif) no-repeat top left;
}
tbody tr.odd td {
      background-color: #D0EBA6;
}
tbody tr td:hover, tbody tr.odd td:hover {
      background: #c5e894;
}
tbody tr th, tbody tr td {
      padding: 0.1em 0.4em;
      border: 1px solid #a6ce39;
}
tbody tr th {
      padding-right: 1em;
      text-align: right;
      font-weight: normal;
      background: #c5e894 url(bg_cell.gif) no-repeat top left;
      text-transform: uppercase;
}
tbody tr th:hover {
      background: #D0EBA6;
}
table a[href*="taimar.pri.ee"] {
      float: left;
      width: 64px;
      height: 64px;
      font-size: 0;
      text-decoration: none;
      background: transparent url(http://taimar.pri.ee/examples/table-design/taimar.gif) no-repeat 0 0;
}
table a[title^="Download"] {
      float: none;
      width: auto;
      height: auto;
      font-size: 100%;
      background: none;
}

/* LINKS */

table a {
      color: #854400;
      text-decoration: none;
}
table a:visited {
      text-decoration: line-through;
}
table a:hover {
      text-decoration: underline;
}

My HTML has 3 tables in it and I would like to apply the above style only to one table.  How could I use this above CSS specific to only one table.

In your html part, give the table an id:
<table id="table1">

And in the css section, change "table" to "#table1"  (or table#table1)

#table1 { ...}

#table1 a {...}

You could then also change rulesets like this

tbody tr th, tbody tr td {
      padding: 0.1em 0.4em;
      border: 1px solid #a6ce39;
}

to only apply to the one table:

#table1 tbody tr th, #table1 tbody tr td {
      padding: 0.1em 0.4em;
      border: 1px solid #a6ce39;
}

Try this CSS - presuming the table you want to style has the id "table1"
<table id="table1">


<style>

#table1 {
      width: 100%;
      color: #212424;
      margin: 0 0 1em 0;      
      font: 80%/150% "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", "Lucida Sans", Lucida, Helvetica, sans-serif;
}
#table1, #table1 tr, #table1 th, #table1 td {
      margin: 0;
      padding: 0;
      border-spacing: 0;
      border-collapse: collapse;
}
#table1 caption {
      width: 100%;
      height: 39px;
      font-size: 0;
      line-height: 0;
      text-indent: -5000em;
      background: url(caption.gif) no-repeat 98% 0;
}
#table1 caption:hover {
      background-position: 98% 100%;
}

/* HEADER */

#table1 thead {
      background: #524123;
}
#table1 thead tr th {
