      Description

      Hi guys!

      It would be nice to have an optional "scope" attribute for table headers, created with <td> or <th>, to improve table accessibility for screen readers, etc ... The scope attribute is explained further here:

      http://www.ferg.org/section508/accessible_tables.html#contents_item_6.2.4

      I have made a modification for this myself, and have included the minor source changes in the attached text file. I know you guys would like have a patch file, but I can't seem to generate one properly from behind my companies firewall (sorry!). I also wasn't sure if you needed a test case for a minor addition such as this.

      Thanks very much guys, your library is great!
