Scope is supported by many screen readers.  At one time some screen
readers did not support it.  Scope is limited however to less complex
tables.  It can be used some complex tables but others leave ambiguity --
specifically when data tables contains regions of data that are all in one
table.

Hi James,

> I'm now sure that I can use scope to do what I want since it has four
attributes.

Really? AFAIK, the @scope is pretty must universally unsupported by AT
(or at least it was for a long time). Has this changed?

Cheers
