I understand that nesting a data table inside another data table is generally frowned upon, but in some cases it seems to me that nesting a table in another is exactly the best way to communicate the data relationships. I wrote a codepen which illustrates a case I am dealing with:
https://codepen.io/azaitchik/pen/QJXRQVQ. (The top row nests an inner data table.)
Voiceover, Jaws, nvda all have no problem with the nested table, and I am wondering if there are guidelines as to when the tables (outer and inner) are "simple enough" that there's no problem with nesting.
Any guidance people can offer will be most appreciated!
