The following confluence issue shows that it should be possible to use custom colors for table rows/cells https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-6482.
I am using the latest version of confluence and can only see 5 light colors. How can I choose a custom background color for a cell/row?
This is an essential functionality and I can't find it.
It's a shame that this most basic and trivial feature is open since 2012 - 7 years:
But it's OK: we're locked in to Atlassian, so you can plan the next price increase because "Atlassian puts so much energy" into its products.
The development team considered the ticket you linked to be fixed when they added the 5 light colors. For more, here is the suggestion: More cell highlight colors in Confluence If you comment or vote on it, you will be added to notifications.

As James as pointed out, on some monitors these light colours are not visible, especially non-HDMI monitors. What is the reason for not allowing more colours?
The panel macro could be so very much more useful if you could set panel width and had a free-form style box for applying things like float:right.

Maybe add the free-form elements under an Advanced expand? I have seen some macros do that.
