I want to display, text along with images, line by line, with different portions of text with different fonts, and the images at various positions in the line. Which gui component should I use?

I am building a chat application, wherein I need to display the messages from the users, with the emoticons, line by line.

I have seen JTextPane but it only gives the method:
insertComponent( Component c )
But when I dont know how to display line by line.

If JTextPane is the solution, then kindly explain to me how to use it or send me a link where this information available.
