My book has a full rundown of the underlying HTML issues, and how it  
works in ufs.

An abbreviated version of this should be published as an article in  
Digital Web Magazine in the coming weeks.

Dmitry Baranovsky’s Conference Schedule Creator [1] generates code  
using the axis and headers approach.

Speaking from experience, anyone creating complex table based event  
timetables will save *a lot* of time and effort using this (and get  
nice typography into the bargain)
