Dear all:
bearing in mind I'm not an experienced coder but acting as an accessibility
conduit for those who are:
I've been asked,

is it possible to link data in a scrolling div tag (in the bottom half of a
page) with header information in another fixed table in the uper half of
that page

example, a page contains contact details for a number of people:

objective to display headings such as "name, address, ...,...," as a fixed
item with the data contained in a scrollable div tag below this header bar.

accessibility problem,
because the info is contained in two tables it seems inpossible to link the
ID tags in the lower table to the TH tags in the upper table.

any ideas as to how to achieve this?

thanks
