Hi, folks.

What can be done with the following table that uses TFOOT to pass 
accessibility checkers - what sort of association is required of TFOOT, 
and how is it accomplished?  Any insight would be great.

Thanks.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML lang="EN">
<HEAD><TITLE>TFOOT with no HEADERS</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY><A name=top></A>
 
<p>
<table border=1
       summary="table with IDs and HEADERS and TFOOT">
<THEAD>
<tr>
 <th id="t1head1">table 1 header 1</th>
 <th id="t1head2">table 1 header 2</th>
 <th id="t1head3">table 1 header 3</th>
</tr>
</THEAD>
<TFOOT>
<tr>
 <td colspan="3">footer with some information relevant to the table, but 
not necessarily to any particular cell, row or column</td>
</tr>
<tr>
 <td colspan="3">footer with some information relevant to the table, but 
not necessarily to any particular cell, row or column</td>
</tr>
<tr>
 <td colspan="3">footer with some information relevant to the table, but 
not necessarily to any particular cell, row or column</td>
</tr>
</TFOOT>
<TBODY>
<tr>
 <td headers="t1head1">table 1 data r2 c1</td>
 <td headers="t1head2">table 1 data r2 c2</td>
 <td headers="t1head3">table 1 data r2 c3</td>
</tr>
<tr>
 <td headers="t1head1">table 1 data r3 c1</td>
 <td headers="t1head2">table 1 data r3 c2</td>
 <td headers="t1head2">table 1 data r3 c3</td>
</tr>
</TBODY>
</table>
 
</P>
</BODY></HTML>

Cheers,
