Hi all -

I'd like an opinion on the accessibility of our data tables. I think I've 
covered everything including:

1. Table caption elements.
2. Proper table structure including th, thead and tbody elements.
3. identifying relationships between columns and cells using scope, id and 
headers attributes
4. A meaningful table summary attribute.

Is there anything I'm missing?

Thanks in advance.
