Just as we can add borders around the cells of a table, we can also add color fills to each cell. This enables us to add background color to our item listings—either to the entire listing, or to individual sections (cells) within the whole.
This template, shown in Figure 8.16, is a popular one. It takes our standard single-row, single-column layout and adds a light color background. (This example uses a light blue; feel free to change the color name or code to any other color of your choosing.)
