Layer Sticky

Hi,

  I am wondering if there is anyway to create a div layer "sticky".  It is kind of like how Excel and OpenOffice have the ability to "freeze panes".  To put it in perspective, I want to have column headings that not only stay there when you scroll down on the content layer, but if you scroll horizontally, then the column titles scroll to match the content columns.

  Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks
Ben

I have this example set up that scrolls table elements within div's - is this what you're looking for?

Yes, but your's only works in IE.  I actually have a solution in progress.  I found it from here:

No problem Ben - I just wanted to find out if we were talking about the same thing.
If you have a solution, do you want me to delete the question?

If yes, just post back and I'll do it immediately for you.
