    Html table design for accessiblity

    I have some data to be displayed in the front end.

    It has some 40 attributes in the backend.

    In front end when the user comes to the page, user should view the data and also edit it. ( I will give inline edit for the table)

    And which is best way to display the data inside a table. Does the reader reads the data from left to rigt if there are four caolumns or reads all the data vertically. Please see the attachement below

    ex: consider the following examples has a html table. ( Please check the attachement below). Thanks in advance

    First format

    attribute 1 : value1
    attribute 2 : value2
    attribute 3 : value3
    attribute 4 : value4
    attribute 5 : value5
    attribute 6 : value6

    and so on.... some 40 rows... below

    Second format

    attribute 1 : value1 attribute 4 : value4

    attribute 2 : value2 attribute 5 : value5

    attribute 3 : value3 attribute 6 : value6

    and so on.... some 40 rows... below


    Third format

    attribute 1 : value1 attribute 2 : value2

    attribute 3 : value3 attribute 4 : value4

    attribute 5 : value5 attribute 6 : value6

    and so on.... some 40 rows... below

    Tables serialise from left to right, top to bottom. So the first option is probably the most accessible.
