problem with japanese font

I'm trying to set text to a JLabel. Suppose I have a string variable called
"description". "description" contains japanese characters.
when I use jLabel.setText(description), it works fine and shows the japanese
fonts properly. Now if I try to wrap the description with html tags..e.g

jLabel.setText("<html><body><font FACE=\"sans-serif, Arial, Helvetica, Geneva\">"+description+"</font></body></html>");

then it just messes the japanse fonts. Why is that so? How can I wrap that in html?
Thanks in advance.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
