Al and I received advice from Gregg on how to address this action item in a manner palatable for the WCAG WG.  Thank you Gregg.


ACTION-20: Work with Al to come up with addition to WCAG intent for 1.3.1 to cover table cells and row/column headers:

1.      Add the following paragraph to make it clear that 1.3.1 covers tables (in front of the current last paragraph):
When information is presented in tabular form, the row, column and header information for each cell would have to either be "programmatically determined", or the relationship between each cell and its row, column, and header information would have to be available in text.

2.      For easier reading, edit the current last paragraph to read as follows:
There may also be cases where it may be a judgment call as to whether the relationships should be programmatically determined or be presented in text.   However, wherever possible, information and relationships should be programmatically determined rather than described in text.
