I tried this as I have a complex table with axis that I would like to "see"
how it "hears" -- I don't have a screen reader, yet. Perhaps I'm looking in
the wrong place, but I don't see "page style". Where should I be looking?

And, while I'm here, is there a simple way to do table axis in FrontPage? I
ended up handcoding them.
