Joining Column Headers with Columns

I am about to check the Web AIM site for this information, but since I want to find an answer as quickly as possible for this question, I figure I ought to ask here as well.
We are using tables to create a scrollable multi-column list box. Most of the list box is accessible. The only part which isn't are the headings.
One of the requirements of the solution is that the column headings for this table should not scroll, though the contents should be able to do so. We found one way of doing this by making the column headings a separate table. Are there any ways to associate the column headings in one cell with the columns of another cell? In this very specific instance, the solution only needs to work within JAWS (3.7 or later.)
I know this may seem like a weird question.
