Mozilla should support the abbr attribute for table headers.

For example if I define a table header as
<table>
<thead>
<tr>
<th scope="col" abbr="Ref">Payment Reference</th>
  . . . . .
</tr>
</thead>
  . . . . .
</table>

Mozilla should be able to replace "Payment Reference" with "Ref" when the window
is resized to a smaller size (e.g. small enough for the words to wrap)

Reproducible: Always
it seems to be a valid requirement by html 4.01, however it will have low priority.
