Description discoleo 2007-06-07 13:21:27 UTC
Various internet sites and web applications are using special highlighting for
tables, making reading the information significantly more easier.

 - 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, and various other sites, e.g. a very nice one on Mozilla

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,
though I like more the design from the Mozilla page).
