Using jQuery, I want to align the indicated <th> tag to the left  (right now it is centered)

<th scope="col">Details</th>



Here is the code segment:

<table class="grid_view" cellspacing="0" id="ctl08_gvRepairItems" style="width:300px;border-collapse:collapse;">
		<tbody><tr class="grid_view_header">
			<th scope="col">&nbsp;</th><th scope="col">Repair Item</th><th scope="col">Units</th>







\\\\\\\\\\\  right now this is centered, I want to align it to the LEFT

<th scope="col">Details</th>







		</tr><tr id="ctl08_gvRepairItems_ctl02" onclick="HighLightGVRow('ctl08_gvRepairItems_ctl02', 'ctl08_gvRepairItems_ctl02_hdSelectedRow', 'ctl08_gvRepairItems_ctl02_hdOldStyle');">
			<td style="width:100px;">
                                            <a id="ctl08_gvRepairItems_ctl02_lnkDelete" href="javascript:__doPostBack('ctl08$gvRepairItems$ctl02$lnkDelete','')" style="display:inline-block;width:40px;">Delete</a>
                                        </td><td>
                                            <span id="ctl08_gvRepairItems_ctl02_lblRepairItem">Carpet Cleaning</span>
                                        </td><td>
                                            <span id="ctl08_gvRepairItems_ctl02_lblUnits">SF</span>
                                        </td><td>
                                            <span id="ctl08_gvRepairItems_ctl02_lblDetails" style="display: inline-block; width: 800px; text-align: left;">asfasd</span>
                                        </td><td><input type="hidden" name="ctl08$gvRepairItems$ctl02$hdSelectedRow" id="ctl08_gvRepairItems_ctl02_hdSelectedRow"><input type="hidden" name="ctl08$gvRepairItems$ctl02$hdOldStyle" id="ctl08_gvRepairItems_ctl02_hdOldStyle"></td>

All this is doing is injecting inline styles....you can do this with css too, which would be a better way to do it....
