What about this :

<table summary="this table will show how many sensitive equipments are
within a distance range">
<caption>Distance to the Nearest Sensitive Environment</caption>

  <th id="dist">Distance (feet)</th>
  <th id="val">Number of sensitive envs</th>
(... here a loop on your query results...)
  <td headers="dist">$dist</td>
  <td headers="val">$val</td>
(... end loop...)

What do you think? Or did I misunderstand your question?
