Please use real words when posting to the forums. Abbreviations such as "bt" in place of "but" and "dn" in place of I-dont-know-what only serve to make your posts more difficult to read and less likely to generate useful responses.

Please click this link ⇒ UseRealWords for more information.

JEditorPane is hopelessly outdated as far as HTML support goes. It can only handle HTML 3.2. You'd better try a third party library like Lobo.

You'll find Lobo on SourceForge.

That's odd, the first link I get when I google for "lobo site:sourceforge.net" is called "Download Lobo - Java Web Browser". What are you getting?

I see: you assumed that there was a difference between the two - but there isn't, it's the same project. "Lobo" is the name of the browser, and "Cobra" is the name of the library Lobo is built on.

1) UseRealWords. Not "n" or "bt" but "and" and "but".

2) UseCodeTags.

What I mean is: Have you copied that URL to your web browser to see whether you can access it? If you have code that is supposed to display the contents of an URL -but doesn't- then one of the possibilities is that the URL is invalid; this test helps you confirm or reject that possibility.

I'm not surprised; the Lobo home page states that JavaScript, CSS and DOM are not implemented fully, so any site that pushes the envelope on that is bound not to work correctly.

Creating a fully functioning web browser in Java that handles all web sites is a student project? That's insane. A modern web browser incorporates hundreds of person-years of work; how do you propose to duplicate that effort by yourself?

No idea, since we don't know what the scope of your project is supposed to be. You won't be creating a browser that is on a par with Firefox or IE, that's for sure.
What did your adviser say about the idea - did he think you could do it? Regardless, ask him for alternative ideas.
