Hello,

I received an action item at the 6 October teleconf [1] to propose
a checkpoint for table summary information. The goals of the proposal:

1) Create a checkpoint analogous to 9.4 (for links):

   9.4  For a selected link, provide information to help
        the user decide whether to follow the link.

2) Replace existing 9.8 and 9.9 which were for dependent user agents
   only:

   9.8 Provide access to header information for a selected table
            cell. [Priority 1] 
 
   9.9 For dependent user agents only. Indicate the row and column 
       dimensions of a selected table. [Priority 3] 

PROPOSED CHECKPOINT:

  For a selected table, provide information to help the user
  understand the purpose of the table and the organization
  of its cells.
     For example, provide information about table headers,
     table dimensions, table caption and summary information,
     cell position information, headers associated with a 
     selected table cell, etc.

  I suggest priority 1 for this checkpoint.

 - Ian
