That is something I did forget to mention. This is an intranet site.
Basically, the browser will be IE 6.0.

What I often do in these cases is to include header
rows in the middle of the table. Find a place to
separate the data a bit and include the header
information again.

I've never thought long and hard about the
accessibility implications of this, so would be
interested in any feedback.

The other option that comes to mind is to use CSS and
fix the position of the headers as "absolute" - but
realize that you're not going to help those pesky NS4
