Use this as your cell renderer for the column in question:

public class MyCellRenderer
{
      public Component getTableCellRendererComponent(
            JTable table, java.lang.Object value, boolean isSelected, boolean hasFocus,int row,int column)
      {      
            if( value instanceof Icon )
                  return new JLabel( (Icon)value );
            else
                  return new JLabel( value.toString() );
      }
}

Thanks for the response.  The only thing missing was that the class needed to implement TableCellRenderer.  The code worked like a charm.  Now if only I can figure out why it worked!
