I noticed this, too. The scope attribute is still there. Are there cases
it can't cover, for which headers and/or axis would still be needed?

Regardless, the omission of abbr on th seems like a loss to me.

Thanks Gregory,

I find reading specs a painful experience but I have had a quick look at
the
draft HTML 5 stuff.

Am I right in assuming they are deciding to do away with headers for
data
tables after extensive pleading by the accessibility community for them
not
to do this? It appears so!

Point 3.4 Absent Attributes in the Differences document outlines the
"attributes from HTML 4 (that) are no longer allowed in HTML 5". The
list
includes, "headers, axis and abbr attributes on td and th" as well as
"summary attribute on table."

Roger
