The key is to use GridBoxes. You have much more control over the
appearance of your table. By combining the options of GridBoxes with
StyleBox you can get pretty nifty looking Tables:

Here is a basic example:

DisplayForm[StyleBox[GridBox[{ {"", "global
rules\nstored with\nthe head",
       "global rules\nstored with\nan argument", "local rules"},
{"evaluate \
rhs", "=", "^=", "->"}, { "delay rhs", ":=", "^:=", ":>"}}, RowLines ->
True, \
ColumnLines -> True, GridFrame -> True], FontColor -> RGBColor[1, 0,
1], \
FontWeight -> "Bold", Background -> RGBColor[0.42002, 1, 0.932296]]]

Hope this helps,

Cheers,
Brian
