Thanks Sailesh.  I thought aria role=presentation causes AT to ignore the element.  So would this not hide the table and the content therein?

Bruce,
With respect to your comment on use of role=presentation on the table with credit cards in example#2:
It is a layout table and role=presentation helps to remove any ambiguity in its interpretation by AT.
NVDA, for instance will expose it as a table in FF if the role is absent.

Regards,
Sailesh
