I dont know exactly how to put a color on a string into the JTextPane?

Example :

JTextPane p1 = new JTextPane();

String x1 = " Hello ";
String x2 = " World ";

// How do I set the color of the 1st & 2nd String ?
// I want x1 to be in color red & x2 to be blue ?

p1.append(x1);
p1.append(x2);

Is it possible how ?

Set the content type to HTML, then use the FONT tag to set the color:

JTextPane p1 = new JTextPane();
p1.setContentType("text/html");
p1.append("<font color='blue'>" + x1 + "</font>");
p1.append("<font color='red'>" + x2 + "</font>");

try {
        // Get the text pane's document
        JTextPane textPane = new JTextPane();
        StyledDocument doc = (StyledDocument)textPane.getDocument();
   
        // Create a style object and then set the style attributes
        Style style = doc.addStyle("StyleName", null);
       
        // Font size
        StyleConstants.setFontSize(style, 30);
   
        // Background color
        StyleConstants.setBackground(style, Color.blue);
   
        // Foreground color
        StyleConstants.setForeground(style, Color.white);
   
        // Append to document
        doc.insertString(doc.getLength(), "Some Text", style);
    } catch (BadLocationException e) {
    }
