re. page 14 of the dec 02 draft ... The question "Couldn't we just use
foot notes (FN) here?" -- that would be wrong:
1) first table cells may in their own right need footnotes
2) could be akin to use of <h*> tags to control font selection in terms
of forcing users to apply incorrect markup
3) From the wg meeting discussion, it sounded like the braille rendering
decisions would need to follow guidelines well understood by the
braille 'industry' but not by most HTML document authors. If there
are presentation hints (aka style again) which would improve
rendering they should be expressed in a way both experts in braille
document publishing and us average folks can understand.
