    You would set the bgcolor property of the alternating cells.

    Something like:

    <table>

    <tr>

    <td bgcolor="black">Row 1 Col 1</td>

    <td bgcolor="white">Row 1 Col 2</td>

    <td bgcolor="black">Row 1 Col 3</td>

    <td bgcolor="white">Row 1 Col 4</td>

    </tr>

    <tr>

    <td bgcolor="white">Row 2 Col 1</td>

    <td bgcolor="black">Row 2 Col 2</td>

    <td bgcolor="white">Row 2 Col 3</td>

    <td bgcolor="black">Row 2 Col 4</td>

    </tr>

    <tr>

    <td bgcolor="black">Row 3 Col 1</td>

    <td bgcolor="white">Row 3 Col 2</td>

    <td bgcolor="black">Row 3 Col 3</td>

    <td bgcolor="white">Row 3 Col 4</td>

    </tr>

    <tr>

    <td bgcolor="white">Row 4 Col 1</td>

    <td bgcolor="black">Row 4 Col 2</td>

    <td bgcolor="white">Row 4 Col 3</td>

    <td bgcolor="black">Row 4 Col 4</td>

    </tr>

    </table>
