Word wrap in JTextArea

Hi, I am in the process of learning about Swing and have a question regarding the use of JTextAreas. I searched this thread for previous posts on the topic but didn't find anything that solved my problem.

The below code works fine in the appletviewer, but not when embedded in a web page. That is, the inputdialogs work but not the messagedialog, and the text in the outputArea only shows the last word in input.

The messagedialog was just there to test that it was actually inputting the text correctly, but it doesn't actually show when viewed in the web page, so I thought I'd inquire about that as well.

it looks OK.
perhaps if you posted the entire applet code, we could run it and observe the behaviour

Your subject title mentioned word wrap, so I assume you're having some issue with that. Try including
