I agree with Dan...hot mess, linearize or reformat using column headers and one row per course name or whatever that is in the 3rd column.

Another option is to transform it into a series of tables, using the first column as a CAPTION and/or Heading (i.e., not in the table grid itself) and add headers to the table columns.

Subject: [Athen] Layout Tables - help!

Someone has sent me a table, to ask for my help in making it accessible. I have a couple of ideas, but I would like to open this up to everybody here for help.

What would you do with a table like this?

Area A - Essential Skills

ENGL 1101

ENGL 1102

MATH 1113
MATH 2200

English (C&L)
English (L&C)
English (C&L)
English (L&C)
Mathematics AB/BC
Mathematics AB or
Mathematics BC

3 or 4
3 or 4
3, 4 or 5
4 or 5
3, 4 or 5

Area B - Institutional Option
* Information Technology

ITEC 1001

ITEC 1001 proficiency and
ITEC 2120 credit (or ITEC 2140 if an IT major)

The actual table is much longer, but you probably get the idea. And by the way, the original table has no headers.
