PHP Table Code

The following code works fine I'm just trying to make it more presenatble in a browser. At this time this code pulls data from my MySQL database & displays it in a browser. As you can see in the attached pic, the background behind the data is all white. How can I edit this code so every other field will be a little bit darker to help the user distinguish each field?
