Don't know what happened to my message ... something ate it.
So I better put it short. Have a look at Ben's message to Publich HTML:

And read Anne's blog. It shows some misconspetions about @SCOPE vs.
@headers (which I was explaining ... but he make it sound as if
@headers is almost against the nature of the table.)
I recommend tryhing Anne's table  in the table inspector . You
will see that if you test the table _without_ any attributes at all
(use the option to turn off @SCOPE and @HEADERS), then it works almost
the same as it does with the HTML5 algorithm _with_ the @SCOPE
attributes that Anne applied. (It is of course funny that one can
achieve the "no attributes" solution that Anne pledges for with HTML4
- but not in current HTML5 ... )
Rob, or anyone, there is small difference: HTML4 without @SCOPE shows
more headers - but I think in this case the HTML5 show is better.
Agree? (Chime in, you aural browsers users!) But what I wonders about:
how do I make the same happen in HTML4? Hint: the challenge is the row
with <th colspan="4">, which makes it impossible to use headers="".
