You're right Andrew, but that's the problem. What are the best
practices with software? Are they as easy to define as th tags, or td
with scope or header and id tags? HTML tables are more content than
application, and mark-up is vastly different than under-the-hood code
which can't be discerned.
We see grid controls in statistical analysis packages all of the time
which will never speak because GW Micro or Freedom or Dolphin haven't
scripted for them. In fact, Excel wouldn't speak if it hadn't been
scripted for by market forces. The question we get most from developers
is "How do you do it?" The more specific the standard, the easier it is
for them. to understand it. So how do we come up with generalizable
standards without losing the kind of guidance provided by standards like
22 g and h.
