Modifying table scroll script by Richard Cornford

I'm trying to figure out why the script that Richard Cornford wrote to
scroll a table loses the column headers when you add a row header. For
example:

<table>
<tr>
<th>Name</th>
<th>City</th>
<th>State</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<th>Les</th>
<td>Albany</th>
<td>New York</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<th>John</th>
<td>Los Angeles</th>
<td>Californi a</th>
</tr>
</table>

The "Name" column header disappears because the names are in <th> cells.
Anyone have an idea how to change the script so that the headers show up?
Please let me know. Thanks!

Is a 'header' in the top left cell of a table with column headers and
row headers a 'mata' header for the column that it is above or a 'meta'
header for the row that it is next to? The situation is ambiguous and my
decision was to not script for it. That and because including it would
add to the complexity of that part of the DOM and the script by one
third, and start to make other strategies look preferable.

<snip> <td>Albany</th>

<snip>

An opening TD tag and a closing TH tag?

I'm new to DOM and can't figure out this thing: I'm trying to add a row to a table with a form field in one of it's cells, but if I'm appending the field to a form it gets out of the table. Can some one tell me what I'm doing wrong? it looks like this: var tbl=document.tbl; var frm=document.frm; var newcell=document.createElement("TD");

I am designing a table with 2 columns and 20 rows. I want to insert small images (each with a link) and a text title in each cell of the table. On refresh of the page, I would like to have the contents of each cell (picture/link and associated text) rotate randomly. Note that the text titles must remain with their associated picture and link (I don't want to scramble all the elements--just rotate the entire contents of the table cell).

This is a common requirement - "freeze panes" in a table, so that some header rows and some columns on the left are frozen while the body content scrolls. This makes large tables more usable on screen. There are a number of solutions available. For example, http://www.litotes.demon.co.uk/example_scripts/tableScroll.html I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a "latest and greatest" script to solve this problem. My requirement at the...

I'm using Richard Cornford's table scroll script (http://www.litotes.demon.co.uk/example_scripts/tableScroll.html), and I've discovered that I can "freeze" as many cells as I want by making them "th" tags instead of "td" tags. I want to have the left 3/4 of the table frozen while scrolling the last 1/4 on the right...and that's where I ran into a problem. It seems like the scrollable area can't be smaller than the frozen area. I've been...

Trying to tweak a great looking table script that is better than some commercial or css solutions: http://www.litotes.demon.co.uk/example_scripts/tableScroll.html by Richard Cornford. The script works fine, and I'm able to customize it. However, it's conflicting with all my other java applets. I've tried searching for solutions for what must be a common problem, duplicate onload event handlers, but I'm not even sure that that's the problem....

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
