Gary,

thanks for the pointers - here is a brief report. The \strutt command
mentioned in this link does not seem to have a visible effect when
placed inside a table or array. Another solution mentioned is
\setlength{\extrarowheight}{length}, which is part of the package
array. This works but does not center vertically the contents of the
cell. I did not try the other packages metnioned in that link.
