I am slightly confused about how to mark up tables
where there is only 1 logical level of headers.

Checkpoints 5.1 and 5.2 would suggest that it is
_only_ necessary to identify the headers, and yet in
the 'coffee' example given here

it would appear that both checkpoints 5.1 and 5.2 have
been applied even though there is only 1 level of

Is the approach taken in the 'coffee' example required
in order to be Single A compliant, or do only the
headers need to be identified?

Which is preferable to screen reader users?
