This Java Swing tip illustrates a JLabel that uses inline HTML to format its text. This may be useful for developers who need html related features in their labels.

 import javax.swing.*;

public class HtmlLabel extends JPanel {

  public static final String markup = 
          "<html>line 1<p><font color=blue size=+2>"
          + "big blue</font> line 2<p>line 3</html>";

  public static void main(String argv[]) {
    JPanel p = new JPanel(new java.awt.GridLayout(0, 1));
    p.add(new JLabel(markup));
    p.add(new java.awt.Label(markup));

    JFrame f = new JFrame("HtmlLabel");
    f.setContentPane(p);
    f.setSize(600, 200);
    f.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    f.setVisible(true);
  }  
}
