Subject: [WebAIM] Guidelines for nested data tables?

I'm working on an interface that will consist of a data table with each row
being expandable to show more details of that particular record. The details
would then be formatted in their own table.

This seems like a common need, but I haven't found too much that addresses
it specifically.

Is it fine to add a blank TR to the parent Table to insert the nested table
within? Are there any issues/guidelines in regards to nesting data tables?
