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

http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10-HTML-TECHS/#identifying-table-rows-columns

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)
