Wayback has screwed with the styles, but I have tracked down an example of my
table markup for Yahoo! finance

Example of using @abbr to exclude a footnote link when reading the cell as a
header for other cells:

<th id="performance-hdr" colspan="5" abbr="Performance">Performance<a
id="perf-note-ref"
href="http://web.archive.org/web/20080513154741/http://uk.biz.yahoo.com/16/sector.html#performance-note-anchor"
class="note-ref" title="Note about performance">1</a></th>
