Lately I have been working on a potential Drupal 6 project that needs displaying information in a formatted table structure. Needless to say I have been using a lot of
theme_table(). Yes, I do understand the benefits of
hook_views_data() but this is a different case.
One thing I found to be annoying about
theme_table() is it's default behavior of adding sticky table header and not having an argument that can be passed to disable it when needed as introduced in D7 https://drupal.org/node/224333#sticky_headers
