I've been doing research into interesting data tables found on the web [1]. 
I save the original markup (original.html) then make some variants of it by 
applying different header techniques.

This is ongoing but takes a back seat to my professional work. There are 
currently:

* 33 original tables found on the web.
* 127 variants.
* 0 examples from W3C documents.
* 160 in total.

I hope these will be useful to test implementations and shape the spec over 
the coming years. Any errors you find or suggestions you have, no matter how 
small, please do reply with them. :-)

Jake from Accessify Forum provided some audio clips [2] from IBM's Home Page 
Reader while accessing the Gorleston Tide Table collection [3]. I think more 
of this could be useful but don't bust a gut over it.

Links to each collection are in the readme, [1], along with more details.
