Does anyone know if it is possible to get JTable to wordwrap and display multiple lines of text within a singel cell?

If you are using the standard cell renderer it extends JLabel which understands html. You can wrap your text between <html> and </html> tags and word wrap will be taken care of for you.

The nice thing about Standards is that there are so many to choose from!
