By that, I suppose you mean using the Custom White Balance mode of the camera whereby you shoot a white or grey reference card and use it to set the CWB? This way is more tedious and time consuming and by the time you set up the CWB, the photo opportunity could be over already.

By the way, the WhiBal cards could be used for JPEG shooting also. I found the procedure in RawWorkflow.com's site. They suggest that:
"In Photoshop or other image editor, load the WhiBal picture that was taken under the same lighting conditions as the pictures that you wish to White Balance properly. Using the Curves, or Levels tool (according to what is available in your image editor), select the "Gray point" eyedropper. Click on the light Gray WhiBal card. The picture should now reflect the proper White Balance for that scene and lighting. Save this setting and label it appropriately. Now whenever you are editing a photo taken under the same light, load that curves or levels setting and that same WB correction will be applied to the new photograph."

Another alternative, go try a pringles cap or something equivalent. Works well for me all along and its free too.
