How does one highlight the area around text?

Pure LaTeX with \usepackage[dvips]{color} does this for postscript with
   \colorbox{red}{A red shaded box}
But in latex2html, "\colorbox" does no highlighting, rather it makes the text 

I am particularly interested in highlighting headings in a tabular 
environment; eg
highlighting the following words,
     Description  Location  Organization
     -----------  --------  ------------

For this, html code might have a separate entry for each word; eg, 
I have seen the following within a table on html pages,
    <TH BGCOLOR#ccffff>Description</TH> 
I appreciate any suggestions, even kludges, though I don't want to spend
time altering the html that latex2html outputs.
