			<h2>How does it work without JS? 🤯</h2>
			<p>This sticky header consists of two elements: an <strong>outer</strong> and an <strong>inner</strong> container. The outer container is taller than the inner — and the inner is centered vertically.
			<p>By utilizing the <code>position: sticky</code> property <strong>twice</strong>, both on the header's <strong>outer container</strong> and <strong>inner container</strong> the outer container will stick to the <code>body</code>, while the inner container will stick to the outer container.</p>
			<p>Note that the outer container has a negative <code>top</code> value equal to the height difference between the two containers. This causes the outer container to stick <strong>above</strong> the <code>body</code>, making the inner container stick to the "ceiling" on scroll.
