By using a color with less than 100 percent opacity (some transparency), the alternating green
is slightly mixed with the light yellow background color. h e caption background color is the
same as the alternating row green, but it has 100 percent opacity (solid) and you can see it has
a slightly dif erent tint. h e th elements inherited the table's background color but serve well
as column labels without any other adjustments.
h e cell widths are set to a non-relative value (70px) because the width rel ects the fact that
the table is optimized for mobile viewing. As a result, the names can take up double rows and
not detract from either the design or the table's functionality.
