I want to take an html file and convert it to an image.  The reason I want to do this is so that I can produce a thumbnail size image of the html file for preview purposes.  I'm not sure if there's a better way to do this, but I'm open to suggestions.

You could render the page using JEditorPane and then use it's graphic context to paint the page to an image. It's (JEditorPane) HTML support is limited though and may not be sufficient for your needs. If not you'll need to find a component capable of satisfactoritly renderering the html, perhaps ICEBrowser.
