Hello Bruce,

For people that are learning disabled or don't have a good short memory
I always should add headers to a table.
How can one easily distinguish between some simple tables in a row that
are shown over more screens when there are no clear headers?  Not every
page has one simple table that is showed in only one screen.

I even could imagine that the guidelines: 'write as simple and clear as
possible" or  3.1 "ensure that the meaning of content can be determined"
also could be applied here.
