Don't know what pear is but:
You can format columns like this in html:
<col style="background: green;" />
<td>First TD of first TR</td>
<td>Second TD of first TR</td>
<td>First TD of second TR</td>
<td>Second TD of second TR</td>
That makes the background of the first column green.
I understand how to do basic formatting, thanks. The problem is this is using a php framework (sort of) that queries a database and then spits it out into a table form that can be then displayed. Controlling the formatting of individual columns that are being auto-generated is the issue...
I understand that. But with the col tag it should be possible I think. Just add for loop which adds the col tags and you should be fine. Can you add the source code please, that I can understand whats the problem is?
k thanks for adding source. Should be possible with setColAttributes() (pear.php.net/manual/en/)
