How about just the word "Display" or just the word "Data"?

Your most useful comment by far had to do with sort. (The thing doesn't sort immediately on selecting a col head because of the possibility that the guy wants a multi-column sort. That whole idea is still a vexing UI question.) The "refresh" button should never say "refresh" or show a refresh icon; instead, it should say "Sort" or "Sort Table": that's what the user is interested in, not some esoteric, developer-lingo "refresh" function. So thanks again. You're a great help. That one observation was well worth the price of admission.

Thanks for your very detailed impresions and comments. Yes, auto-refresh should be the default; it's manual-refresh only while I'm debugging. You think background-color striping on rows and columns? I'll try that! Thank you again for your very helpful effort.
