Finally I've taked this approach, subclassified WATableReport and made 
my own coloring routine.

Now, I've some doubts:

1) Why not all the name colors work, means not all are rendered ok used 
in the form:

html attributeAt: 'bgcolor' put: (self colorForRowNumber: index), or, to 
be simplest:

html attributeAt: 'bgcolor' put: 'red'.

Some name colors (as red, lightYellow, lightGray) work ok, but anothers, 
as paleRed, paleYellow, lightRed don't work.

2) To some of those colors that works ok, as lightGray by example, 
another problem that I've found is that are rendered different by 
FireFox (render ok) and Internet Explorer (lightGray is showed as strong 

Any comment will be appreciated.
