Various internet sites and web applications are using special highlighting for tables, making reading the information significantly more easier. Features: - alternating rows have slightly different backgrounds (2 types of gray) - row which has the focus is highlighted automatically using a 3rd color For some examples, see attached image (taken from phpMyAdmin, see on sourceforge.net), and various other sites, e.g. a very nice one on Mozilla (https://crash-reports.mozilla.com/reports/topcrasher/byversion/Firefox/3.0a5pre). This is something that really improves readability. Spreadsheet applications are really lagging behind with respect to user friendliness.

The Mozilla site seems to be non-responsive. But the OASIS site has an example, too (see http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/documents.php?wg_abbrev=office-formula, though I like more the design from the Mozilla page).
