Table header text should not be empty

The text in table header components should be visible. Make sure screen reader users can access the table header. It is preferable to mark up an element with a td if it is not a header.

Both sighted users and screen reader users should be able to comprehend the visible text that explains the purpose of the row or column in table header components.
