ASP Fixed Header and Footer

First time asking a question on here and relatively new to ASP, VB and CSS but I can't seem to figure out or find an answer to this problem anywhere.

I have SQL data that I am pulling into a Data Table and need it to display with a repeater with a fixed header and footer with the items being scrollable.

I've found that using 3 separate tables is probably the only way I'm going to be able to do this but when I do that, the vertical columns will not line up consistently. I have included the header on the item table to specify the column widths there instead of in the repeater item template but that introduces the problem of having a slight header and the top of the item table.

Keep in mind that the data in the item table will constantly be updated and I hope to make the columns sortable eventually.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Your method depends to a degree on which browsers you are planning to support.

The method at http://www.imaputz.com/cssStuff/bigFourVersion.html

works with most of the newer ones.
