Hi, i have never used JEditorPane before and was hoping someone will give me a couple of tips.What i need to do is to disply same text (which has a bold text in it, NOT HTML).I tried using JTextArea but because it does not support bold text i have charcters repeats.Then i tried JEditorPane and used setText();.The problem is that it does not seem to append text like TExtArea 's append();.
Could someone point me in the right direction as to how to do it or give me a small example ?
Thank you.

Check out how to use Editor and text panes in the swing tutorial.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
