W3 4.0 beta 23 and HTML tables



from memory, there was a problem with the tables.html file
in the distribution.
I'll attach it below.

Also, the table processing addon still has many problems to
resolve and breaks on most of the hairy tables on the WWW
--though at least in my environment it appears to work on
simple tables--

There is a lot of work to be done there, and neither Bill
Perry or I are able to do justice to it in our vanishingly
small spare time.
To get this correct, we'll basically need about three weeks
full time at it.

P.S. Note: I am still running 4.0.21 of w3 dont remember why
I didn't upgrade to .23.

this is to test a table cell that possibly spans more than
one line. We need Emacspeak to work well with this kind of content.
