Ok...I am a bit confused now...here is some of the documentation on the
Imaputz website (http://www.imaputz.com/cssStuff/bigThreeVersion.html),
where I got the model for this table:

>Browser Support (table is scrollable with fixed headers)
>Mozilla 1.x + (All Platforms) :: Tested with 1.0x and 1.6x 
>IE 6.x + (Windows) :: Tested with 6.0x 
>Safari 1.x + (MacOS) :: Tested with 1.2x 
>Konqueror 3.x + (Linux / BSD) :: Tested with 3.2x

As I am fairly new at trying to tackle cross-browser compatibility, am I
missing something??

As always,
Adrian

Safari doesn't support overflow on table elements. Nor does Konqueror  
3.5.
Opera equally lacks support for this.

The best implementation of scrollable tables I have seen is this one  
by Brett Merkey:

header.html>

Degrades well on browsers that don't support overflow on table elements.
