Could you show us a few screenshots of what you believe are
"good-looking Excel 2010 tables"? (e.g. via imgur.com) Sorry I do not
have Excel 2010.

I feel this post is more like a matter of style, so it is likely to be
a personal matter of taste. Anyway, I'd like to see what is a
beautiful table in your eyes.
