I want to create a jsp where there is a textbox and the user can change font styles (such as bold, italicized, underline, change color, change font style, highlight align a word/s) inside the textbox just like an MS Word. I'm not looking for a system similar to code ranch's posting of message which displays the tag in a textbox.

Can someone please tell me how can I do it... TIA

Not in JSP -- JSP is a server-side templating engine. (Read this article if you want info on how JSP works).

What you want is some client-side component such as the CKEditor.
 
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
