Typical highlight/background colors might be white, green, orange, yellow, blue,
magenta, etc.

Depending on if the text is black or white, you may want a dark "highlight" - so
a dark version of the above.

I usually use examples from well-developed software packages or presentations to
draw inspiration when I hit a mental / aesthetic block.

Maybe open up LibreOffice / OpenOffice Calc and see what works, or just do a web
image search for "spreadsheet" and see what works.

Depending on what the final render application is, you may want to consider
adding rgbt 1, or not rendering the background box at all, to allow for
transparent backgrounds with that +ua setting.

I could also envision a need for an rgbf color, say if someone was using a table
to annotate an image or something like that.

Heck.  Tabulated () could be used to make a chess game animation, highlighting
the current piece and destination square / options....  ;)
