Thiru I have made half of the work for you:

Playing with this code I have seen that is not possible to have more than one font simultaneaously in a TextArea.
By the default you can edit a TextArea.
It is possible to have more than five caracters in a line.
The exact number of rows and columns shown depends on the LayoutManager, but there are at least the especified number in the constructor.
Now Please do the same for the second question and post the results here for others.

Thanks Jose. Here is my understanding.
for QUESTION 1
a) It will show exactly 5 rows. //only 4 rows are shown at a time
b) It will show exactly 5 columns. //depends on charater minimum 3 in the case of w and maximum 10 in the case of l
c) Each item can only be 5 letters long. //I don't know what does he meant by item.. but I assume that it is one row. Then it can have any number of charaters(scrollbar appears)
d) You can edit the contents.// of course
e) You can have multiple fonts inside it. //false what happens if i want to show first para in one font and second para in different font? Is it possible?

Will post Textfield after sometime
