Re: is this table linearizable?

If you want to know what the content looks like linearized, it would be:

country country1 country2 capital capital1 capital2

Listening to this example, I might know which country matches which
capital because of the numbering. IN the live interface, I might know
what the relationships are because I might know the relationship between
a country and a specific city. However, I would not be able to figure
it out based on the way the table linearizes.

If this is intended to be used as a data table, I would suggest using
one of the other options mentioned by other people here.
