How about an automated check data (file) format service? Difficult but useful!? Just for the very simple data vs image etc

you'll understand when you've read it (only takes half a minute). It's presenting survey data as TIFFs (argh!)

It makes me think we should think about a Panton Paper on how to publish SIMPLE data. Some simple points for authors, editors and reviewers to be aware of. Nothing comprehensive. But since there are so many publications of tables, can we at least get these fairly standardized.
