To set the bgcolor of a table cell element using  Java, I can use:
       document.getElementById('td_id').style.backgroundColor='#FF0000';
How do I reset, clear or remove the bgcolor so that the body bgcolor shows in the cell?  

I know I can set the cell's bgcolor to the same as the body but I want to avoid having to change the Java code if I change the body bgcolor.
