Here's a workaround: http://jsfiddle.net/mnnGA/29/

And some browser bugs:

But I wonder if this is really a browser implementation issue. HTML has
tbody and thead/tfoot in the expectation that browsers will implement the
scrollability - probably doing something like setting an explicit height on
the tbody with CSS - some time at the end of the 1990s.

I don't think there is any need to change HTML itself, and I suspect that
CSS also has the relevant properties - it intuitively seems that something

tbody { height:2em;overflow:hidden }

should do the trick, but in the couple of browsers I tested - Yandex, based
on blink like Chrome Vivaldi and Opera, and Firefox - it doesn't.

Sounds like you might need the cooperation of both parties; how can I post
to them?
