aloha!

a few days ago, i archived the following explanatory emessage with an 
attached test file in a post archived at:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-archive/2007Sep/0056.html

the test file is archived at:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-archive/2007Sep/att-0056/form-in-
table-uses-tabindex-and-scope.html

quote from post to www-archive:
the attached file is a demonstration of a simple test, adapted from the 
example provided by "Techniques for WCAG 2.0", which is included in its 
entirety at the following long, possibly wrapping, URI:

http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/ExplicitAssociationPatterns#head-
5863a518c17510a69b5f858ae1655e8b25db3246

and tweaked, through the removal of the "title" attribute defined for 
each input element, and the addition of "scope", so as to test:

  1. assistive technologies' (in particular, the state of screen reader) 
     support for the "scope" attribute defined in HTML 4.01 Strict

  2. support for the "tabindex" attribute defined in HTML 4.01 Strict
