    Default Make some text bold, some NOT bold. JTextField

    Hi,
    I need to make a button which allows the user to enable or disable bold font, as they are typing away in a JTextField, up to now I have only been able to disable all of the text, not parts of it, or as I would specifically need, the text typed after you have pressed the bold button. I have been advised elsewhere to try to use HTML with <b> </b> but this does not seem to work. Does anybody know how to get the HTML code working in java or a better way of getting the result I need?
    Thanks for any help,
    Danny

    Have you looked into JEditorPanes and JTextPanes? these have support or "styled" content, which the JTextField does not.
