Look at

Click on one of the tag headings and the properties/attributes are in a
table with scrolling... something kinda like you are describing.

I believe the scrolling table body functionality is only currently supported

in Netscape 7 and Mozilla anyway.  If I'm wrong, if you can show me an 
example that works in IE, I would name my next child after you :)  I've been

trying for a while to find a way to have a header section stay put, and 
there's of course the scripted "jump back to the top when the page scrolls" 
trick, but you have issues getting the proper column widths then.  I know 
about putting a <thead> seciton in the table, but I think IE only honors 
that when printing, so that a multi-page table will have the headers on each

page, but I don't think it matters to on-screen rendering.  Am I wrong?
