Yes, you can set the value for this attribute. Currently, if you wish to set this attribute value (or other attributes that are not exposed in the Table Properties dialog) you can do the following:

1) Place the insertion point anywhere in the table.
2) Open the Attribute Inspector.
3) Drill up to the “table” element using the dropdown list at the top of the Attribute Inspector. The current values for that attribute will be listed.
4) Click on the @rowheader attribute value's listbox and select one of the enumerated values listed (it will list all the values defined by the current DTD). If you are authoring to the DITA 1.3 DTD then the value “headers” will be available. If the DTD is for an older version of DITA (1.1 or 1.2) then that value will not be available. If you are working with a specialized DITA DTD then any values you have defined should be available.

Note: This Attribute Inspector feature can be used to access the attributes on any ancestor element relative to the current selection.
