In Opera 6.0, It is found in
File > Preferences > Page Style > User Mode > Tables

In Opera 5.0, it is found at
File > Preferences > Documents > Presentation modes > User > Tables

As far as Front Page is concerned, there is no way to markup tables with
scope, axis, headers or other tags without going into the source code, to
the best of my knowledge.

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.
