Hi

I was wondering if I could get some feedback on the accessibility of a
data table I've done. It's for the financial statement of an annual
report, and since this is the first time I've done a table like this,
I'm trying to do one, get it right, and then use that as a template
for the rest.

The table is at:
http://www.tis.co.nz/test/financetable.html

I'm trying to get the table to look close to the printed version
(there's a link to an image of this in my notes) whilst remaining as
accessible as possible.

I've written some notes, assumptions and questions below the table.

In particular:

1) Have I used the ID and header attributes correctly?
2) Is the table summary usefully written?
3) Is there anything else I can do to make the table more accessible?

Thanks for any help and feedback!

 
Regards

Mike Brown
