Make table titles visible on every part of the table

Summary by MarcoAurelio

Not doable in Wikitext. This page is being phased out in favour of as well.

Not sure how to say this in English: I'd love to be able to see the table titles too when I'm browsing on the middle of the table, etc. and the table top isn't visible anymore. With so many columns it is easy to get lost. Would that be possible? Thanks.

A floating table header I think? I don't know how to do that, but if it's doable in wikitext, I can modify the output to generate that!

It's not doable in wikitext; I think we could do it via TemplateStyles, but it'd be fragile as we'd have to rely on the thead element being addressable, which isn't in wikitext and is normally (always?) inserted by the parser…
