As far as I know neither MSIE5 nor netscape support this. I've hacked a
solution using an ugly kludge of iframes and frames- theads in top frame
set no scroll and tbody in lowerframe set scroll- arg!- I wouldnt
reccomend this to anyone unless you enjoy having something undependable
or loads of server side script crud to match the table content in the
two frames. and of course iframe only works in IE. Does netscape have an
alternative to iframes? Is this something we should expect to see?
(iframes). Also, is there (going to be eventually when hell freezes
over) support for leftmost cell not scrolling while tbody scrolls?
