How to use it:

1. Load the main JavaScript file 'fixedThead.js' after jQuery library and we're ready to go.

.fixed-thead table {
  width: 100%;
  border-collapse: collapse;

.fixed-thead, .fixed-thead-head {
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;

  overflow: hidden;

.fixed-thead-corner { top: 0; }
