I have a string that outputs the message "Your order number is 999999 and your code is TEST" on a JOptionPane. I want to change the font and the color of the order number, and the code. How on earth can I do something like this??
Thanks for any help!

Labels support HTML tags, so you could use a FONT tag...

Thanks for the reply! However, I may be doing something wrong. When I tried to put HTML tags in my JLabel, It read displayed it with the HTML tags as text. Am I missing something?
Thanks again!

Nathan Pruett is right! Maybe your swing version is low!

Jennifer,
Do you have this problem when you compile and run Nathan's example?

I'm running under 1.4 also, and I see the HTML tags working...

Thanks for the help guys! I ran Nathan's code and it worked. I had previously deleted the code I wrote last time when I tried this on my app, so I redid it. Now it works! Maybe I left something out of the HTML that needed to be in there. I'm not sure what it was. But thanks again for all of your help. You guys are great!
