I normally put in something along the lines of 

summary="layout table"   :-)


btw, do you *really* have to lay out in tables?

Subject: Is bobby correct?

I just test one of my site using Watchfire’s bobby tool and under priority 3
Accessibility I was told that my site does not meet the requirements for
Bobby AAA Approved status as I have not provide a Summary for my table.
The table in question is just there for layout purposes and not data as I
understood the guild lines you only need to use summary for data tables.
Is this correct?
Thanks for your help.
