Can someone point me to readability info on table formats? I've got half a
dozen people making suggestions on the format of my tables, all of whom
claim to have readability studies behind them. However, they can't seem to
specify where the info comes from. I'd like to read some readability
studies for myself. Some of the issues:

o when to use alternate shading for lines in a table
o to use or not to use column borders
o right or left justify titles that appear along the Y axis
