Sorry I will not be able to send the source code of the table..but I can
give you the structure... The table has the same HTML table structure only
with TH and TD... but they are not created statically...but created
dynamically at runtime by using Microsoft JScript and DHTML object model...
For example a script is used to create the table...
function createTable()
var oTable = document.createElement("TABLE");
oTable.innerHTML =
This is just a sample to give you a idea how the table is being created...
Can this be made accesible by the screen reader...
