Summary:   Thank you Richard Sproat, Galina Bolden and George Nagy for responding to my query about research on tables! This is a compilation of the answers:

?There were several papers by Jianying Hu, Gordon Wilfong and Dan Lopresti at Bell Labs on the structure of tables. Also some earlier work by Shona Douglas and others at Edinburgh.? (Richard Sproat)

?[Y]ou might want to take a look at the recent work of Charles Goodwin. Some of the articles (e.g., 1994 ''Professional Vision.'' American Anthropologist 96(3):606-33.) deal with the Munsell chart (for color classification) as well as other visual representations of information. Here is his website: Also, Edwin Hutchins' 1995 book ''Cognition in the wild'' (about ship navigation) deals with various maps, and may be helpful as well.? (Galina Bolden)

And finally, a number of references fr?n George Nagy:
