Tables Used for Data

Identify table headers and use appropriate markup to associate data cells and header cells for tables that have two or more logical levels of row and column headers. In a table that lists members of the cast of The Music Man, a typical table header might be Actor, and table cells associated with it would include Robert Preston, Shirley Jones, Buddy Hackett, Hermione Gingold, and so on.

A sighted person who is using a graphical browser will see the connection between Actor and the column of names directly below it. But screen reader users require additional markup that connects the table header to its associated data cells.
