seems to me that this one of those machine gotchas.  I'd leave it as is
if you can live with the imperfect report.

Subject: Headers for tables used for layout


Hi Everybody

I use InFocus 4.1 for checking pages for accessibility, it shows
violation
for a table, but I have used the table only for layout, so I don't want
to
specify headers for it.
Is there any way, I can put additional tags in the <table so that screen
reader considers it has a layout table, not data table?

Thanks
Viral Patel
