Re: HTML table model suggestion

I like Paul Grosso's proposal for a more robust and extensible table markup
in HTML. I'll weigh in on the side of adding a more CALS-like markup for the
representation of HTML tables.

Perhaps we need to put this up for a vote?

A question for Paul: Why did you not add the CALS THEAD and TFOOT elements
(table header, and table footer, respectively) to the content of the TGROUP
element? For example:

<!ELEMENT tgroup - o (colspec*, thead?, tbody, tfoot?) >

<!ELEMENT (tbody |
tfoot |
thead) - o (row+) >
