HTML articles only available to subscribers, Unit-measures are present only in the table headers, which are not connected with the data-values with the correct semantic headers/scope HTML arguments. Many similar HTML-Tables found in other scientific journals.

In order to skip HTML parsing, data is often shared by means of extra txt/csv files, a measure microformat would be most useful in such cases.
