Floating header with css

Last Modified: 2013-11-19

 I would like to have a header float on a webpage.  Sort of like when you freeze panes on an excel webpage.  So when a user scrolls down the page, the header moves with them. That way, they can always click on another page link on the nav bar. The reasoning is, we have a rather long page with food items we're selling. The links on the nav bar are anchors on the page. So if they want to look at beef, they can click on beef and go immediately to that category, because the nav bar (header) is scrolling.

I wouldn't want to use frames for this; anybody know if it can be done with CSS? Thanks very much!!
