Description
This bug is to track specific issues specified in bug 6702376.

Licensee observes the HTML generated by the Javadoc tool does not meet the
requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 standard:

   http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/

Here are some accessibility problems believed to be found so far.  Note that
this is not an exhaustive list - there are likely to be more problems.

1. Tables should have captions, summary information
2. Table columns should be labeled.

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

The HTML tables displaying data should append summary attribute to the <HTML> tag and should also have a <CAPTION> tag. The tables should have column headers.
