CSS;

Code:
table {background-color: #000;}

will give you a black background to all tables on your website. Of course you can also target it using a class or ID.

If you can't get your head around basic CSS then try it inline;

Code:
<table width="336" height="77" border="1" style="background-color: #fff;">  
 
  <tr>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
</table>

I've just told you and given you two methods.

Do it in the CSS (with either a class or ID if you want to target a specific table) or do it inline as my post above.
