I meant to point this out in my last comment as well (there was a throw
away remark about the real problem with the table of radio buttons 
being to make it work with people with limited dexterity), but I 
managed to prune out my own  comment about why dexterity was
an issue.  I also suggested there may be occasions, such as when
working on a swaying train with a laptop (and, as an afterthought,
probably even more so with a tablet PC or PDA) where people with good
dexterity may have difficulty hitting small targets.
