ColumnHeadings and RowHeadings have been on my wish list ever since Grid
was introduced. I don't know why we don't have them.
Still, I like Grid so much better that I am willing to Join my own
labels. That seems to be more effort than most of my students will go to
(though a few of them will). So I started slapping Labeled around
Grids in class (without saying anything about it), and the students
started imitating it.
We'll be making tables of terms and partial sums of a series, say, and
do something like this to keep track of which table is which:
Some of the students are even willing to put in some manual spacing to
label the columns.
Labeled[Grid[terms,Frame->All], " n a[n]"]
But yeah, ColumnHeadings and RowHeadings would be nice to have for Grid.
