ISSUE 32, table-summary, was moved to this task force at this morning's HTML5 telecon.  I haven't yet created the bug for this.

Changes from the last draft include

1)      Filled in the template

2)      Changed orientation="rows|cols" to orientation="horizontal|vertical" based on feedback from Leif Harlvard Silli.  While I agree that there's possible confusion with the @dir attribute, I'm not sure that @mainorder is better than orientation.  I agree that an example of vertical orientation would be good, but haven't had a chance to build one yet.  If anyone has time to do that, I'd greatly appreciate the help.

3)      Changed visual user agents MUST NOT render summary to SHOULD NOT render summary, based on feedback from Kelly Ford and Laura Carlson

4)      Added Authoring tools MUST make it possible for authors to add and edit summary. WSYIWYG authoring tools SHOULD render it visually.

5)      Added guidance for conformance tools, section 4.9.14.  This version does not include a requirement that conformance checkers warn on tables without a summary, describedby, legend or caption.
