. When I use class for table than this apply on

Can I write my HTML like this using CSS?

There is a CSS selector, really a pseudo-selector, called nth-child. In pure CSS you can do the following:

tr:nth-child(even) {
    background-color: #000000;

Note: No support in IE 8.

Or, if you have jQuery:

  $("tr:even").css("background-color", "#000000");
