formatting text in a JLabel

I want to have the text inside of a JLabel underlined. This must certainly be possible, but I can't seem to find information about anywhere.
Is there anyway I can underline the text within the JLabel declaration and initialization, or should I format the string beforehand and then had the underlined string in the JLabel?
Let me know! Thanks alot!
