insert the tables in a <div> your_table </div> tag set.
and then set the scroll property of <div> to true.

That I'm not sure... but I just checked it, and it works in firefox as well. Try this:

<div style="height:40px; overflow:auto">
put_your_table_in_here
</div>


you can change the height:40px to whatever height you need the table to be displayed.

cheers,
Dawn.
