I was just reading your otherwise excellent web content accessibility 
guidelines at http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/
when I noticed that the gracefully marked up table example at section 
5.1.2 Identifying rows and column information contains an error - the 
table code has missing </TR> tags:
<TABLE border="1" 
          summary="This table charts the number of
                   cups of coffee consumed by each senator, 
                   the type of coffee (decaf or regular),
                   and whether taken with sugar.">
     <CAPTION>Cups of coffee consumed by each senator</CAPTION>
         <TH id="header1">Name</TH>
         <TH id="header2">Cups</TH> 
         <TH id="header3" abbr="Type">Type of  Coffee</TH> 
         <TH id="header4">Sugar?</TH>
         <TD headers="header1">T. Sexton</TD> 
         <TD headers="header2">10</TD>
         <TD headers="header3">Espresso</TD>

         <TD headers="header2">5</TD>
         <TD headers="header3">Decaf</TD>
        <TD headers="header4">Yes</TD>
