Re: Coloring cells

Hi Jamie,

Take a look at tutorial/FormattedOutput in online Help,

An example is given there which is very close to what you wanted:-

   Table[If[PrimeQ[i], Item[i, Background -> LightYellow], i], {i, 1,  
   10], Background -> LightBlue]

It is almost always true that there is a straightforward way of doing  
what you want (particularly now in V6) but finding it
is not always easy.


Yours truly ... Syd
