                    would expect some statement about it, like "replace TD

Comment:
There is no statement about the SCOPE attribute on TD elements. As it is
allowed in HTML 4.01 Strict, I would expect some statement about it, like
"replace TD by TH for header cells". (Apparently the idea is that every cell
be classified as data cell or as header cell. HTML 4.01 thinks there are cells
that are both data cells and header cells and recommends using TD for them.)
