Doing it with style

scrolling table COMMENTS

Welcome to my Comments Pages

Please note. I get a few hundred emails a week from visitors asking for help, or posing questions on how to modify my demos to suit their application and I read them all. Unfortunately I only have a limited amount of time to spend answering these questions.

So if I do not reply, please do not be offended, and if I do reply then you are one of the lucky ones.

If you are asking for permission to use any of my demonstration then please email me with your request stu{at}

Stu either would do but my strong preference would be for having it as an extension pushing the rest of the page down.

My problem is that in what I laughingly refer to as my spare time I'm doing a series of articles on a complex and heavily misunderstood area.

I'm trying to give people a framework within which they can understand the topic and am trying to reach several classes of reader. There'll be some for whom a digest at the top of the page is enough. But there'll be lots of others who'll want to read the whole thing and follow the links.

I've tried a few things and am now seriously stuck.

Thanks for asking, if you do have any Ideas i'd be seriously grateful.

Thanks for the scrolling table demos!
Looking at "Method 2" - I have a question about the left-hand column. Why is it coffee-colored? And why doesn't it have a white outline? Does this mean properties are inherited down into nested tables?

Joshua the first column in each row is a <th> not a <td> which has a different style.

Yes, but the only thing styled with that color is ".tableone tbody" and the th elements are in "tabletwo", the nested table.

I am even more confused because there is no tbody element in tabletwo - so if anything should be inherited, shouldn't it be the general background color (olive green) specified for tableone?

Do the CSS/HTML inheritance rules describe what happens in nested tables - or the relationships between tbody, td, and th elements?

Thanks for your help.

Joshua, it's a bit confusing but the second table is 'tableone' and the color comes from the tbody.

Hi Stu, thanks for the demo! It's really impressive. I'm trying to implement method 2 using a relative table width and 'em' instead of 'px' for the column width, but then of course the column headings do not line up with the columns in the rows.
Do you have any idea on how to correct this?
