Moving Table Headers

I have a couple of classic asp pages that involve tables with large numbers of records.  How can I keep the table headers visible as a user scrolls down the page.

Thanks a ton in advance!

have a look here...

 <table style="width: 300px" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
  <td>Column 1</td>
  <td>Column 2</td>
</tr>
</table>

<div style="overflow: auto;height: 100px; width: 320px;">
  <table style="width: 300px;" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
  <tr>
    <td>Value 1</td>
    <td>Value 2</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Value 1</td>
    <td>Value 2</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Value 1</td>
    <td>Value 2</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Value 1</td>
    <td>Value 2</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Value 1</td>
    <td>Value 2</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Value 1</td>
    <td>Value 2</td>
  </tr>
  </table>
</div>

You could also try fixed positioning. It's a little funkier to implement, but then you won't have the scrollbar....

(not a finished solution, but you get the idea: http://www.candpgeneration.com/EE-tableHeader.php)

<table style="width: 300px; position:fixed; background-color:lightgray; padding:10px;" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
  <td>Column 1</td>
  <td>Column 2</td>
</tr>
</table>

<div>
  <table style="width: 300px; " cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
  <tr>
    <td>Value 1</td>
    <td>Value 2</td>
  </tr>
...
</table>
