Make a printable JEditorPane (code follows). Make sure that it is set to an HTMLEditorKit (I assume that you are already doing this since you can display HTML) then make sure that it is in a JScrollPane (This is important, otherwise it will only print the visible area) then call doPrintActions().

Cheers,
Kylar
