Html tag

Hello Friends,
I have a problem in specifying font for all my labels.
For eg:
I have a label "qwert yuio pasdfgf hjkkl zxcvcxbx" .
I need font arial 12pts.
I specify it in html tag as follows:
JLabel jLab=new JLabel("<html><p style=\"font-family: Arial; font-size: 14pt; font-weight: 410; line-height:18px; color: #000000\"><b>qwert yuio pasdfgf hjkkl zxcvcxbx<b></font></html>");
All the attributes described is reflected in my label,but the line-height:18px is not reflected.
The label is placed in TextPane or just in panel.
qwert yuio |
pasdfgf hjkkl|
zxcvcxbx |
My need is to reduce the spacing b/w the lines,so i have mentioned it as "line-height:18px ".
But this is not reflected in any way in java. So pl.. help me in reducing the space b/w the lines that could be specified only within html tag.
Excepting u'r replies.
with regards,
David O'Meara

JLabel... JLabel...
Nope, not ringing any bells
Are we talking Swing here? Might want to post the question there.

I agree. Here's the link:
