I use a JLabel with Cursor set to Cursor.HAND_CURSOR, and the font blue

then just add a mouseDown event (actionListener), and you're away :-)

Underlining the text is another thing altogether :-/

but it basically does exactly what I said :-)

You can get the source from here:

and to underline the text, it does

public void setText( String s )
  super.setText( "<html><u>" + s + "</u></html>" ) ;

(ie: sets the text to being a bit of HTML for underline)
