    using html in Java - very simple question!


    I don't really know html but just need to use it in my java so I can control the font when my program is run in a browser.

    So far I have only managed to change the font colour
    I would also like to be able to change the font style to bold and also change the size, so that whoever runs my program sees the same font.

    I have the code as:

    questionLabel.setText("<html><FONT COLOR=BLACK>Is node " + btd.question + " in the tree?</FONT><html>");
    but I just don't get whereabouts and 'how' I add the other two settings to the font. I have an old html books but its not helping, as it ignores when I add font-style:bold

    can anyone help me with this please???

    hope so as I want to control the colour and style so that my program is accessible to the visually impaired as well, however their browser is setup.

    Thanks very much for your time

    you can bold by wrapping <font/> with <b>
    and should be able to change size with <font size="1"/> where you use 1,2,3,4,5 etc
    yet, a more up-to-date method would be

    <span style="color:black;font-size:8pt;font-weight:bold;">your text</span>

    The font tag has long since been deprecated. Browsers may support it now, but the next versions may not. Best to use <span style="color:black"> text </span> or some other html tag
