Hi All,

I don't know whether I am doing something wrong, but Browser.setText()
does not show anything. This is on linux, I have Mozilla 1.6. Here is the
segment which I am attempting:

public void createPartControl(Composite parent)
browser = new Browser( parent, SWT.NONE );
browser.setText("Hello <b>joe</b>");

When I open the (RCP) application where this code is being invoked, the
browser window comes up empty.

I also downloaded the example RCP plugin into eclipse and followed
instructions from <a
href=" eclipse.ui.examples.rcp.browser/readme.html">here</a>:
The browser works fine, except when I replace the browser.setUrl() with
browser.setText(), nothing happens:

It should work after you replace
> browser.setText("Hello <b>joe</b>");
browser.setText("<html><body>Hello <b>joe</b></body></html>");
