The \bTH command is only a modified version of \bTD which uses
a different color and style for the content and disables the aligncharacter
option (which can be used to align numbers on “.” or “,” etc.).

The style and color of \bTH can be changed with the “headstyle” and
“headcolor” keys but for long tables with \bTABLEhead etc. \bTD with
a special setting for the header does the same.
