Building accessible tables

Create accessible tables in HTML - “ CSS and XHTML have given tables a pretty rough ride in recent times. Of course, this is the fault of just about all web developers who have at some point in their career used them for laying out page elements. This article is not about using tables for layout. It is about how to use tables to display information in an accessible manner. Use XHTML and CSS all you want for layout, but at the end of the day (if there is one on the internet) so long as there are informational relationships there will be tables. In fact, to attempt to display any of complex information relationships without a table is a mistake. If you have information to display, use tables and use them well. ”
