One idea is to use plain HTML tables with 'bgcolor' tags for
certain rows and/or columns.

For example:

  <table border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding-1>

  <tr bgcolor="#DDDDDD"> <!-- grey row -->
    <th rowspan=2>Run ID</th>
    <th colspan=2>Before</th>  <!-- cells spanning two columns ... -->
    <th colspan=2>After</th>
  <tr bgcolor="#DDDDDD">

and then your rows of data:



    <td bgcolor="#FF0000">12.45</td>  <!-- highlight in obnoxious red -->


I agree, though, that LaTeX is probably the way to go.

But HTML might work in a pinch...
