You can use a JEditorPane to display simple HTML... just text, pictures, tables, form elements, etc. but not any JavaScript or any other client side dynamic stuff. Just pass the URL of the resource you want to display to the JEditorPane constructor, or the setPage() method, and it should figure out your content is HTML.
