Adjusting TextState of table cell in header/footer

I have a use case where I need to build a fairly complicated table in the header and footer of a document. It appears that the TextState is not being applied when the table is rendered. Here is the simplest example I could come up with to demonstrate this:

Document pdf = new Document();
Page page = pdf.Pages.Add();

TextSegment segment = new TextSegment(“This is some large blue text!”);
segment.TextState.Font = FontRepository.FindFont(“Times New Roman”);
segment.TextState.FontSize = 20;
segment.TextState.ForegroundColor = Color.Blue;
segment.TextState.FontStyle = FontStyles.Bold;

TextFragment fragment = new TextFragment();

Table table = new Table();
table.ColumnWidths = “400”;
Row row = table.Rows.Add();
Cell cell = row.Cells.Add();

HeaderFooter header = new HeaderFooter();
page.Header = header;

// text is formatted correctly when added to page body

// the exact same text is not formatted when added to header or footer


Please let me know if there is something I should do differently or if this is a bug.
