I am using IText 5.1.3 to generate PDFs. Now I have this challenge of making the PDF 508 compliant. For this I need to set the document structure so that the screen readers can read the document.

The pdf on a high level is split into tables, a header, body table (has nested tables inside), footer table. After reading Itext in action, i figured out until this point.

I am not sure how to assign my header or body table to this PdfStructureElement. Let me know if there is a better way to do it.

I agree. Here's the link:
