<humor> That's a scary area to get into... like, how many browsers fully
support W3C standards? How many web pages are actually WRITTEN to standard?

I was told that IBM Home Page Reader (HPR) 3.0 is the only screen reader
that actually supports the table headers mark-up and that JAWs isn't using
the markup, but the top cell in the column.  Odd isn't it that it's both a
WCAG and 508 requirement but only one A.T. supports it?

A free trail version of HPR is available from
