jquery nice table sorter

I'm using the following table sorter script for some query results to allow the visitor to order however they want -  http://tablesorter.com/docs/

The problem I have is that the http://tablesorter.com/docs/ script doesn't allow you to have "sticky" headers so as you scroll down, visitors won't know what each header actually is.

Has anyone dealt with this script and have a modification, or have another script they know of that can do pretty much the same thing?

Thanks, very simple solution, but it's not a very way nice with that plugin I don't think. The header overlaps the text and makes it generally quite difficult to read.

I was more looking for something like when you "Freeze Panes" within Excel.

You just need to apply some CSS to apply a background
