Define your header inside your table using the <table-header> construct:

    <table>
      <table-header>
        ...
      </table-header>
      <table-body>
        ...
      </table-body>
    </table>

It is not your responsibility to do this detection.

Yes, this makes sense.

The designers have given us the <table-header> construct in order that the 
rows of that construct be repeated at the top of any portion of the table 
that appears on any page.

I hope this helps.
