Can I force it to display the data sorted by the primary key?

Here's the code: 
    // store table names in an array 
    $arr_tablenames[] = ''; 
    // store number of fields per table(index 0,1,2..) in an array 
    $arr_num_fields[] = ''; 
    for ($i=0; $i < $num_tables; $i++) { 
        $arr_tablenames[$i] = mysql_tablename($tables, $i); 
        $arr_num_fields[$i] = mysql_num_fields(mysql_db_query($dbname,
"select * from $arr_tablenames[$i]", $id_link)); 
    // store field names in a multidimensional array: 
    // [i] == table number, [ii] == field number for that table 
    for ($i=0; $i < $num_tables; $i++) { 
        for ($ii=0; $ii < $arr_num_fields[$i]; $ii++) { 
            $result = mysql_db_query($dbname, "select * from
$arr_tablenames[$i]", $id_link); 
            $hash_field_names[$i][$ii] = mysql_field_name($result, $ii);

    for ($i=0; $i < $num_tables; $i++) { 
        echo("<center><h3> $arr_tablenames[$i] </h3></center>"); 
        echo('<table align="center" border="1"><tr>'); 
        $result = mysql_db_query($dbname, "select * from
$arr_tablenames[$i]", $id_link); 
        for ($ii=0; $ii < $arr_num_fields[$i]; $ii++) { 
            echo $hash_field_names[$i][$ii]; 
        $number_of_rows = @mysql_num_rows($result); 
        for ($iii = 0; $iii < $number_of_rows; $iii++) { 
            $record = @mysql_fetch_row($result); 
            for ($ii=0; $ii < $arr_num_fields[$i]; $ii++) { 
                echo $record[$ii]; 

Is that too much to sort through???

If the table's background color will be set when the page is first
you can just use the bgcolor attribute of <td> tag.
If you want to dynamically change the background color, you'll need to
combine your page with javascript.
