Every element in matrix is related to its neighbouring elements. You cannot
take an element out of a matrix and expect it to have any meaning. It is
only through its relationship with the other entities that it expresses its
value.

Generally speaking, a table cell only bears linear relationships with the
headings on its x and y axis.

Steve Hudson provides additional <ahem> enlightenment: <<A matrix and a
table are slightly different. The key is that every element of a matrix
relates to every other. Generally speaking, a table cell relates only to the
terminating headers on the x and y planes, and not to each other.>>

Huh? Once more in mathematics, please. That one's not even internally
consistent.

<<If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle em with bullshit
instead!>>

Consider me baffled.
