Hey guys...I am working on a program that displays html in a JTextPane. When I load a file with setView(someFile), it works just fine, but if I just do setText(), I get the html as plain text. I don't want to have to write the html to a file just to make it work. Any suggestions/solutions?
Thanks All

Have you thought of using JEditorPane.
Have you tried to invoke setContentType("text/html")
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
