A couple other properties you can add to TABLE, TD or TH tags are BGCOLOR, BACKGROUND, and BORDERCOLOR. These are not supported by all browsers, and may have very different results.
|BGCOLOR||Creates a colored background using a hex number for the value.|
|BACKGROUND||Creates a specified image background (tiled). Has different results in different browsers.|
|BORDERCOLOR||Gives the borders of the TABLE color using a hex number for the value. Used in the TABLE tag only.|
