5.6. Customizing table rules and spacing

In this section we look at a number of packages that extend the tabular functionality by providing commands for drawing special table rules and fine-tuning the row spacing.

5.6.1. Colored table rules

The colortbl package extends the style parameters for table rules, allowing colors to be specified for rules and for the space between double rules. The declarations \arrayrulecolor and \doublerulesepcolor take the same argument forms as the \color command of the standard LaTeX color package.

Normally, these declarations would be used before a table, or in the document preamble, to set the color for all rules in a table. However, the rule color may be varied for individual rules using constructs very similar to the previous example.
