Table headings question


From: Preast, Vanessa

I've run across the following table code and am not sure what to think. The table has <th> for the row headers cells only; there are no column headers. The table is also missing a caption.

Do data tables have to have column headers and caption to be accessible, or are row headers sufficient?

<div class="table-responsive">
<table class="table table-striped">
<td>Monday-Friday from&nbsp;8 a.m. to 5 p.m</td>
<td><a href="[url]"> [address]</a></td>
