jquery.floatThead - a new floating header plugin that works with datatables

I recently released a new floating header plugin that works with datatables out of the box. The reason I wrote yet another plugin that floats the headers was because none of the existing plugins met my goals:

- minimally intrusive to your DOM, styles and events
- works on any table
- allows full page scrolling and x/y internal scrolling
- doesnt create invalid HTML
- good datatables support (because i use datatables)

Right now the plugin is in early beta, but if you want to see some demos you can do so here:

github: https://github.com/mkoryak/floatThead

Its still evolving, and feedback is welcome.

    Hi Misha,

    This is a great job ! :-)

    But I'm embarrassed. I wonder if I won't have to replace FixedHeader by jquery.floatThead in DataTables4j ... ;-)

    Anyway, could you please add license information to your plugin ?

    Thanks !
    And again, great job !

    Regards,
    Thibault

    Thibault,
    Thanks for the kind words, but there is still much work to be done to make this stable. I wouldnt go adding this anywhere for at least a month while i work out the kinks.

    In the unminified script source there is this at the top:
    * Licensed under the MIT license: http://www.opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php

    Does that cut it?
