That's a very complex table!!! Perhaps a linear text version would be
better for a screen reader.

Spent an hour outting together a table? I might be able to save you some
time in the future:

Accessible Table Builder -
http://www23.brinkster.com/favelets/accessible-table-builder-intro.htm

Please bookmark - it should save you time building accessible tables.

Unfortunately, it does not cater for more complex table structures that
use rowspan or colspan, but it's a start!

PS - If anyone else wants to include this tool in their own site, they
are more than welcome, as long as the appropriate credit/link is given

Yuck... I just had to spend an hour putting together a table... I hate
tables.... but this really had to be a table.

Anyway I was just wondering if one of these was preferable from an
accessibility standpoint. Are COLSPAN and ROWSPAN troublesome for
accessibility purposes? These look radically different in LYNX with the
'alt.php' version seeming to be much less clear.

(note: this one doesn't have the times listed again in the TDs which I
could easily add if it would be helpful)
