colortab – Shade cells of tables and halign
The package lets you shade or colour the cells in the alignment environments such as \halign and LaTeX’s tabular and array environments.
The colortbl package is to be preferred today with LaTeX (it assures compatibility with the longtable package, which is no longer true with colortab); another modern option is the table-colouring option of the xcolor. However, colortab remains an adequate solution for use with Plain TeX.
