Hi all. Looking for someone who has experience implementing Section 508 guidelines.

I need some clarification about the use of scope="row" for tables. Do I need to put this in the first td of every row (except the headers)? The examples given on the following pages

don't use scope="row" in their td elements, so I suppose that would mean I wouldn't have to use it...but if that's the case, when am I supposed to use it? When I have a <th> as the first cell in a row?

Thanks in advance!
