I have started to write up the tutorial presented by Dan and Rado which 
includes some improvements to this class.  You can find the incomplete 
version at http://www.cdshaffer.com/david/Seaside/WATableReport/

The two things which are missing which I just added to my version are a 
CSS and optional visual indicator of which column is the active sort 
column and support for rendering images (or arbitrary html) in cells.  
These are not in the form of patches but as new subclasses.  I don't 
address the sorting issue raised by Dan but I'd be happy to look at it 
since I do use WATableReport in several places and more sophisticated 
sorting would definitely be a nice feature.
