How to create an HTML page using the javax.swing.JEditorPane package?

I am new to Java. I am trying to create an HTML page using the javax.swing.JEditorPane package. Can you please give me an example of how to go about it?

The following code snippet will construct a javax.swing.JEditorPane, flag it as being non-editable, add it to a scrollPane which is then added to a generic JPanel. You can then add the generic JPanel to any dialog, JFrame, bean customizer or other user interface component:

   JPanel mainPanel = new JPanel();
   mainPanel.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
   javax.swing.JEditorPane htmlPane = new javax.swing.JEditorPane();
   htmlPane.setEditable(false);
   htmlPane.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(width, height));
   htmlPane.setContentType("text/html");
   htmlPane.setText("<HTML><HEAD></HEAD><BODY>Body content added
here</BODY></HTML>");
   javax.swing.JScrollPane scrollPane = new
javax.swing.JScrollPane(htmlPane);
   scrollPane.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(width, height));
   mainPanel.add(scrollPane, BorderLayout.CENTER);
