Hi Group,

I’ve applied the structural changes we talked about in the call last 

1) Moved the example with table headers only in one column to the simple 
tables page[2].
2) Explained the scope attribute on the simple tables page[3].

Then I realized (after speaking with Shadi about the changes), that the 
offset column example is the only one left in irregular tables where 
scope defines the direction of the heading, and that the other example 
define the range of the heading.

So I made even more changes:

1) Moved the Offset Column example to simple tables[4]
2) Added an two tier table header example to the irregular tables page 
(as requested by WCAG WG)[5]
3) Explained on irregular tables  more about the grouping using the 
<colgroup> and <tbody> elements (this is not finalized yet)[6]

I’d love to hear your opinion about the changes, either via email or 
in the call this Friday.

To compare old and new version, you find the old version here:

And the new version here:
