This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
Not JTextArea, but its more accomplished cousins JEditorPane and JTextPane support this. They're both a bit tricky to use, but this turorial will get you started. [ edited mildly confusing typo -ds ] [ January 25, 2004: Message edited by: Dirk Schreckmann ]
