Sorry for giving up.

comment Gradient color in one cell of a table
Following that new question, I am unpleased by the result. This is creating too many side effects, and the code is too difficult for my understanding. I unmarked it as solved but added +1 for the effort. Can you please try to help the other answer, he seems to have an easier approach, and given your high level maybe you can find a solution to make it work ?

comment gradient of color in one cell follow up question
This is getting very complicated. I am unable to reproduce your code snippet in my own code without adding dozens of new problems. It just went back to changing the text color too with no reason. If just adding a completely unrelated command such as a usepackage[french]{babel} or a vertical line just breaks the code, it makes it unstable and maintainable, and thus usable. Thanks for answering my questions though, you're very good. But I need an easier solution on how to add a gradient to a cell's background. I'll mark this one as solved but the other one as unsolved until I find a easier one.

The updated solution seems very interesting, and it's much easier to read and to maintain than the other answer above whose code is quite unreadable. I would much rather have this solution. But I would rather have a real tabular, rather than an emulated one. Otherwise it might get difficult to adjust sizes automatically, or span a content over multiple columns/rows, or add vertical/horizontal lines, or any other advanced tabular manipulation that I know how to do, but wouldn't know how to do with a matrix (unless there's a solution for each of the issues described).

Regarding the first question, well I actually used the first code you gave, rather than the second much more complicated one. I thought the second one was just to have a different behavior on the first run.

I added the link. The code is already in the other question, I didn't modify it.

Thank you very much for your help. I did just what you asked, and posted a new question.

That seems interesting. But how do I adapt this to a tabular ?

comment Gradient color in one cell of a table
Okay, it took me all day, but I finally updated it. It now works. However, I found out there's an incompatibility with \usepackage[french]{babel} (just adding it in the code above). How can I get around that ? I also have two other problems: 1. I just found out, now that I can test it, that this also modifies the color of the text, which is something I want to avoid (I just want the background to change, not the text). Similarly, the color of the \hline underneath is also modified against my will. And my second problem is that if I change c to |c| in the multicolumn, the | aren't aligned.
