html code to webpage

I have two laptops that are communicating over a wireless ad-hoc connection (I'm not using a webserver). After my server computer transfers an html file to the client computer, the client computer just prints out the code that was transferred. How do I get the client to display the html file as an actual webpage instead of a lot of messy html code?

Is the client a J2ME-based client?

Yes, the server and client are J2ME based.

As far as I know, there is no built-in library in the J2ME APIs for rendering HTML. For example, ReqWireless WebViewer uses a servlet which first fetches web pages, translates them into a "simplified" HTML document, and then delivers the simplified HTML to the device where the WebViewer client code renders the HTML "manually". I'm afraid you'll have to do something similar (write code for rendering HTML yourself).

(Obviously I'll be glad to hear about any existing libraries for doing this!)
