HTML » th » bgcolor

The bgcolor attribute of <th> is deprecated in HTML 4.01.

The bgcolor attribute is deprecated effective with version 4.0. You are now to use style sheets. This attribute is used to set the background color for the cell. It can be either a named color (such as red) or a six character hexadecimal RGB color code (such as #e26fa9). This value overrides any color value that was set in the table or tr tags.
