On another question, the only 'complete' working solution was to use two tables and make sure the <td> widths were identical on both tables.  The top or 'header' table was just a single row.  The bottom table was set to scroll.

Either they are too complicated or dont work across browsers.

Somebody must have a simple and elegant solution. Just plain HTML5, no plugings etc

Create two tables one with fixed rows and other with scrollable height.
<html>
<head>
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <table style="width: 300px" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

            <td>
                Column 1

                Column 2

        </tr>

    <div style="overflow: auto; height: 100px; width: 320px;">
