Column/Row/Grid bars FrontEnd String formatting in new cells?

Hello,

The last example (#3) in the following sequence puzzles me:

EX. 1:

CellPrint@"hello\nworld"

(* new cell *)
hello
world

EX. 2:

CellPrint@List@"hello\nworld"

(* new cell *)
hello
world

EX. 3:

CellPrint@Column@List@"hello\nworld"

(* new cell *)
"hello\nworld"


In this last case, it appears that 'Column' prevents formatting of the
string by the FrontEnd. Could someone offer a better explanation? Is
there a way around this, that would produce formatted output identical
to the first two examples?

Thanks,

Vince Virgilio
