That's very impressive. I've just tested it with an example that
doesn't use the headers attribute at all [1], and the associations are
all correct. I'd like to test it with a wider range of tables, but the
algorithm satisfies the examples I put forward. If nested headers are
allowed in HTML5, I think that algorithm could work very well.
