Purpose

This project is to make a solution for the goal described in the StackOverflow question, HTML table headers always visible at top of window when viewing a large table.

Demo

See here for a demonstration of the feature.

Usage

It uses jQuery. It has been developed with version 1.3.2.

The hard work is done with a small amount of jQuery-based scripting. The table(s) itself only needs a certain CSS style added in order to trigger the code to add the floating header functionality to the table.

Testing

I'm reasonably happy with it now. It has not had thorough testing, but I've tested the code as it stands on Firefox 3.0, Internet Explorer 7, and Google Chrome.
