Accessible WRIA components

I'm researching for "best practices" for a WRIA data table component
that contains the following elements:

* Hierarchical table that allows users to expand/collapse the
vertical hierarchy.
* Data tables with more cols than fit nicely within a web page.
Many users have been asking for a feature where they can traverse the
table horizontally without losing the ability to see the first column of
data. (This is akin to Freeze Pane feature in Excel.)
* Ability to let users hide/show table columns on the fly.

Can anyone point me to a good resource for information on developing
accessible WRIA components? Most particularly, I'm interested in WRIA
components that would support the above table implementation.
