|I'd really recommend removing all the
bgcolor= stuff (and the
u tags)and putting it into the style sheet. You can apply multiple classes to an element if you want to, you just need to separate them with spaces, like this:
<td class="alt dark">some stuff</td>
Where "dark" is your new class specifying the correct background and font colours:
If you move all the style information into the style sheet it becomes a lot easier to spot problems in the PHP and HTML.
