Stephen Ferg "Techniques for Accessible HTML Tables"

This paper reviews section 508 and its requirements, and discusses ways to format complex tables of statistical data in HTML so that they are accessible to visually impaired users and compliant with the provisions of Section 508. The purpose of the paper is to assist HTML developers, and vendors of screen-reader products, to understand what constitutes "coding to the standard" for accessible HTML tables.
