I believe so since there doesn't seem to be a way to set or 
change the icon in Tcl/Tk either. Therefore the problem lies 
in the Windows implementation of Tk, I assume.

Nope, I tried the Tcl/Tk FAQ and several books. I also tried 
the c.l.python newsgroups but didn''t think of the c.l.tcl 
one. OTOH Cameron Laird hangs out in both and I think would 
have responded if there was a simple solution (the question 
gets asked a lot - as a search on deja news reveals!).

He regularly contributes on c.l.python...

Whats one of them??? I've never heard of it and how would 
that help change the icon?

Or do you just mean in general... Isn't there a Tkinter table 
widget floating around? Matbe via the Vaults of p webpage? 
Or is it part of PMW?
