Rodger Hudson compiled some information regarding Data Tables
http://usability.com.au/resources/tables.cfm .  In this page he mentions
how WindowsEyes did not appear to support scope and that Jaws users
would have trouble finding specific information in a Data Table that
used the scope attribute instead of IDs and Headers.  

He noticed that ID's and Headers were the better route.
