I clearly haven't spent enough time exploring Office 2007 yet--and
I won't get into how much I resent having to approach this new
version of a familiar old tool (I've used no less than 14 different
versions of Word, counting Mac, DOS, and Windows) as if it were
a brand-new tool I have never seen before...

But in my defense I'll point out that there is no reason to go looking
for the Table Properties dialog just to set a header row for a table
because that option is right there in the table ribbon (or
whateverthehell it is they want us to call the new UI presentation...)
