I don't get what the problem is (in Jaws terms).

I cludged up a sample page using the code fragment, & it seemed to work 
just fine, although there was a line between the parsed table items (as we 
might expect from the <p> tags). ("Work just fine" = works the same with or 
without <P> tags, reading row and column coordinates for each item.

What am I missing?
