It seems fine but there is not enough differentiation in the data for me to 
fully test.  The lecture number and whazzat and test were weird but I guess 
they are supposed to be?

Subject: Accessible data table

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.
