Hi javalovers !
We have a special requirement to create a word processing applet using AWT only as the client denies any plug-ins for swing.
Basically I should be able to achieve multiple fonts as
the user enters text.The entery point of text and the display area both being one and the same component.I tried with textarea but it doesnt support multiple fonts.I hope this is achievable in swing but I need a pure AWT solution for this problem.(kit to be used JDK1.1.8)

Applet may not be a good idea for a Text Editor because of the security restrictions.
