Ben must have forgotten to copy wai-xtech on his deliverable for
HTMLWG Action 85, so I'm forwarding it below for wai-xtech input. His

Feedback is welcome and encouraged, especially if it's public. I will
fix mistakes in this document if they are reported publically or
privately. Including typos. :)

Ian Hickson has told me he plans to review table feedback in mid to
late December 2008. So I'd like feedback on this document to be sent
my way before then, if possible. Let's say 15th December 2008, as
that's 2 full weeks after my deadline to publish this.

Don't forget your Xmas shopping!
