Visual Studio incorrectly identifies correct HTML5 as failing to validate, because it is enforcing a non-existent rule against th elements being nested within (indirectly within, inside a tr) a tbody element.

This may be based on a false assumption that all th elements are column headers, when in fact they may also serve as row headers thanks to the scope attribute.
