Not as far as I know.

When you assign an icon image to a widget (usually a label or button),
FOX will honor any regions identified as fully transparent in the
image. For PNGs, it uses the alpha channel to identify regions where
alpha is zero; for other image types it can guess the transparent
color or you can specify it explicitly.

You aren't missing anything. All you can achieve with the table, short
of maybe subclassing it and overriding the drawing behavior, is set
alternating cell colors.
