How in this dialog can I get rid of the Font: English (U.S.) that is shown in the summary at the bottom? I'm tired of changing the spell checking language for every table in a non-English document.

I'm reading the original question as that he does want to spell-check the table contents, just not in English. Your way would disable spell-checking altogether. – Alex Nov 18 '10 at 16:07
Indeed. I removed the "uncheck the 'Do not check spelling or grammar' box" instruction. – gulbrandr Nov 18 '10 at 16:09
This solution is not chaning a style, just applying a spell checking language globally which is not what I'm trying to achieve. – Borek Nov 19 '10 at 7:09

I think the Table Grid and/or Table Normal styles ultimately are based on the Normal style. So if you change the language there (right-click the Normal style in the ribbon, and select Language), then that should take effect for tables too.

Normal is Czech, as is Normal Table. – Borek Nov 19 '10 at 7:08
