Is there a way to print a table's first 3 rows at the top of every page printed, when printing what's viewed through IE?

Using FrontPage 2003, is there a way to specify that the first three rows of a table are the column headers that should be printed at the top of every page when printed through Internet Explorer?  It is so very easy to print a lengthy web page but the top of one page begins where the previous page left off.  Is there a table attribute that causes, when printing, that the header information is repeated at the top of the data displayed on each page?

    Are you just using a long table/list  or getting the info from a database where the list is very long and comes in multipages?

    Hi again,

    You can do that using CSS.  Try this

    I'll be trying your suggestion over the weekend and will get back to you Monday.  I do have one question: If the table resides as a web part on a SharePoint page, will this still work?  That's what I'm going to try out.

    SharePoint sites build there theme information from CSS files.

    Be careful when editing SharePoint sites live in FP, though.  Its not hard to corrupt your page/site.

    I was unable to get it to work from within a Content Editor Web Part within a SharePoint page.  Reason being that there is only body html within the Content Editor Web Part, no heading html.  I've learned from others that this is perhaps one of the most daunting problem in web publishing both within and without SharePoint.  

    I'm going to ask the coordinator for this section to close this out, under the circumstances.

    You have to edit the webpart in a .net editor if you want to change its behavior.  SharePoint webparts are .net - you cannot do this in FrontPage.
