Scrollable Tables

Hi,
I would like to make the tbody section of a table scrollable, while
leaving the headers and footers in set places. I see that firefox does a
reasonable job of this (simply by setting tbody{overflow: scroll}, but I
would like to do this in IE6.

I realise that this doesn't work straight off, but was wondering if it could
be faked by adding marins to the table and absolutly positioning the top and
bottom row. However, not got much further than that. Does anyone have any
ideas?

Thanks,
Martin

Here's an example I bookmarked some time ago:

Ok, how about a version that works on internet explorer for windows CE Pro
5.0? Can that be done?

Also, is there a version that can do this in IE without script? (I do
believe that expression(document.getElementById("data").scrollT op-2) is a
script).

Ta,
Martin

ah, discovered another example on that same site that does pretty much what
I'm looking for, and works on the CE machine.

I'll adapt the example to what I need.
