ExtendedDataTable classes in <td> AND inline height declared inside header child div

Hi.

 

I need help with extendedDataTables.

 

Regular dataTables create headers properly with HTML classes manifesting within the <th>s.  ExtendedDataTables, however, nest the class in a div INSIDE the <td>.  I need the class to be applied to the parent <td>(highlighted in attached image in red). 

 

Also, I can't have inline declarations like "height" in the divs(highlighted in attached image in orange).  Any way to eliminate that?

 

 

Thanks,
