Subject [jira] Commented: (CLK-673) Caption and th headers
Date Wed, 30 Jun 2010 07:22:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLK-673?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12883823#action_12883823

Finn Bock commented on CLK-673:
-------------------------------

Well, I suppose that <caption> is related to accessibility, but <caption> is also
rendered visually:

  http://people.apache.org/~bckfnn/table-caption.html

It also seems that specifying a summery on <table> and no caption is a valid way of
making a table accessible:

"""
Authors should therefore take care to provide additional information summarizing the purpose
and structure of the table using the summary attribute of the TABLE element. This is especially
important for tables without captions
"""

  http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/struct/tables.html#h-11.2.2
  http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/struct/tables.html#adef-summary

It would be better IMO to add a setRenderAccessible(true) or setRenderHeaders(true) property
for controlling the feature.
