During a more general discussion of typesetting tables elsewhere, I found


So the \rowcolors command, provided by the xcolor pacakge
(which seems to use colortbl's \rowcolor), provides automatical toggling,
now row-wise \rowcolor needed.

I guess for the colours tried in previous postings, the command is


preceding the table.

I think Martin Heller


was wrong in saying that his proposal needs xcolor,
because (i) he used just \rowcolor from colortbl, and
(ii) the colour model "gray" he used is provided by
the standard color package already.

In the CSS world, this style of tables seems to be called "zebra tables" (google).
