(The examples from chami.com, developerTutorials.com and W3CSchools 
aren't really helpful; "mixed messages" indeed!)

I would also add:
* http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10-HTML-TECHS/#table-summary-info
* http://www.webaim.org/techniques/tables/data.php#summaries
* http://www.usability.com.au/resources/tables.cfm#summary
* http://joeclark.org/book/sashay/serialization/Chapter10.html#code-1855

Best regards,

Christophe
