Re: Tables: Does scope="col" Stop When A Row Spans Multiple Columns?

- Headers with a scope of "col" are column headers
- Headers with a scope of "row" are row headers
- Cell can span rows or columns up to the maximum number of rows or columns in the table.

If the table may be fully executed using the above you don't need to use IDs.

Does that help?
