This appears to be not a big deal, at least no-one else has reported it, but I was caught out by it. I had a table, where for one column a header, was not appropriate (at least during experimentation). I left that column header as | |. I expected the other columns to sort, but no sorting worked.

Of course it wasn't a case of a working table immediately broken after removing header - i.e. easy to spot the issue. Therefore, I was puzzling for some time trying to find out the root cause.

The documentation in: EditingShorthand; TablePlugin and JQTablePlugin do not make it clear that all cells in the first row must be emboldened to activate sort.

Minimum change is to add to the docs. I'd prefer that for each and every column emboldened then sorting becomes active on those columns. That adheres to POLA much better IMHO.
