Hi,

I use this format to highlight words in a sentence:

<html>This is a <body bgcolor=yellow text=red><b>WORD</b> to be higlighted</body></html>

....but what is the proper format?

Thanks,

Maki Jav

I'm not sure what you mean by "proper format". If it works then it would seem to be proper enough

Swing can deal with HTML 3.2, so if you're curious what you can and can not use, have a look at the specification.

Hi,

Thanks for your answer. I think that there is proper way to write html. What I am doing is using a hack.

I write html pages so I know that you use <span> tag for highlighting but I was not successful with that

I doubt span is supported within JLabels, also since span itself is nothing - only if you set it's style or class will it have any meaning.

You could try font though.

Yes <font> could be used but I need a yellow background of the highlighted word

Font can have a bgcolor as well
 
Would you turn that thing down? I'm controlling a mind here! Look ... look at the tiny ad ...
