The second example of table headers shows headers that are not
in the same column and row as the data cell.


For example you may want the screen reader to say:

"San Jose 26 August 1997 meals 27 dollars and 28 cents"

Key HTML markup is:

1. "id" attribute set on the header cell
2. "headers" attribute set on the data cell (containts a list
of associated header ids)
