Yip that's it. Thanks
1 more thing.

With a table such as the one with head:
<table>
<thead>
<tr>
<th scope="col" style="width: 50%;"></th>
<th scope="col">Poor</th>
<th scope="col">Average</th>
<th scope="col">Good</th>
<th scope="col">Excellent</th>
</tr>
</thead>
<tbody>
...
.....

Is there any way not to have the text in bold, as it is by default
