There seems to be no scope attribute for the TD cell in HTML5 but your own
website gives an example using it:
http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG-TECHS/H63.html. I strongly believer the scope=row
(at least) should be allowed otherwise one must additionally provide a class
for the TH element to override the browser styling defaults. The row scope may
be data in addition to a header so I feel it is relevant to have scope for a TD
cell.
Also, I'm assuming from
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/tabular-data.html#attributes-common-to-td-and-th-elements
that headers attribute is still supported although I have read numerous
accounts where this will be dropped from HTML 5, which would be a mistake
considering the coding effort for headers which would have to be "undone". I
think backward compatibility here is a must.
Respectfully,
-Cynthia Shang
