Not really...

Of course, you can use javascript. (I think somebody just posted--er, kindly
posted--a sample code...)

You can also use CSS to make the header, etc. be "fixed" on different
location of your browser window. However, this approach works only on
browsers that support that css. (e.g. Mozilla-based browsers like N7, etc.
or Opera 6...)

How about another approach using "iframes"? (Personally, I don't like frames
or iframes...) It might work for you.

But then again, the best way IMHO, is to divide your table into different
sections or pages. Do you really need to keep them in one page?

Just some ideas...
