I changed an example to use nested headers [1], and run it through the
table inspector. The table inspector reports "Budgeted", "Actual", and
"Forecasted" as headers for the data in the columns "TCO", "ROI", and
"NPV". That's not correct. The automatic association has assumed the
headers run to the end of the row.
