Centering the header of the columns in JTable

hi,
I use the HTML (i.e. "<HTML><center>Name</center></HTML>") to boldface and center the text of the header for all the columns in a JTable. But I can only boldface the text but could not center them. Does anybody know how to solve this problem? Thanks.

use a center tag like "center" "/center" (In order to display the tag, I use "" instead of <>)
Good luck!

I used once and it works. Just make sure that you close all the tages. "html""center""font face=dialog""B" Bold table head "/font""/center""/html"
Good luck! In case it doesn't work, could you please post the source code.
