[html5] table with fixed headers

For FF diehards ( i cannot live without firebug) like myself ..sadly this wont work
Im trying to convince larry that attributes which are increased/attenuated attributes have to be set by an uber-entity (e.g. Struts/JQuery or JSF/JSP) before the response is generated..there is no other way if you want to use FF (which i do!)
Many Thanks to Gary for the css bits on scrolling tbody..this is a most helpful contribution!
Does anyone else have HTML/CSS/JS contribution for dynamically sized attributes (before larry dusts off the checkbook)?

My apologies if this post doesn't properly address the list; I'm on GMail and damed if I can find the 'reply to list' function.
To my knowledge, NS6+ and Mozilla were the only browsers to properly support a scrolling tbody. For whatever reason, Firefox dropped this support sometime after 2006.
Simply, the css was
The work-around for IE and Opera was fairly straight forward and still works for them as well as for Chrome and Firefox. See http://web.archive.org/web/20060421055400/http://garyblue.port5.com/webdev/scrollingtable.html for a working example, written in 2004 and modified in 2006 for non-compliant browsers, which now sorrily includes FF.
I'd consider this far more robust than using js to modify behavior.

90% of everything is crap, and that may be optimistic.
