    Default html inside applet?

    Hey guys,

    Just curious if its possible to use html inside a java applet. I am currently using a JTable for the user list, But im running into multiple errors when applet is loading and getting a toolbar on each item.

    So is it possible to use html inside an applet? and if so a html table ?

    Thanks.

    In case anyone else is looking there is an introduction to How to Use HTML in Swing Components in Oracle's Tutorial.

    Bear in mind that JLabel != web browser: everything has its limits! Marked up text is one thing, but I've seen people attempting to include buttons and forms etc and the result isn't pretty. Also that using html with Swing components is no panacea removing the need to correct actual gui design problems indicated by runtime exceptions. (Of course, this is a general warning and not intended as any sort of criticism of what you've done.)
