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, Sonara.
