Use a DocumentFilter around the JEditorPane's Document. You'll need to do quite some checking and coding in there; insertString needs to check if the position is allowed, remove needs to remove everything except the blocked part, as does replace.

I have never tried it on a JEditorPane using HTML but you might be able to use the Protected Text Component.
