When the window is resized, I would like the content to be resized too.  
How can I do this please?

     public void initialize()
     {
          // Window properties
          screenSize = new Dimension(650, 550);
          setSize(screenSize);
          setResizable(true);

          // Help Panel
          helpPanel = new JPanel();
          helpPanel.setLayout(null);
 
          // Help Content
          helpContent = new JEditorPane("text/html", "");
          try
          {
               URL url = getClass().getResource("/help/help.htm");
               helpContent.setPage(url);
               helpContent.setVisible(true);
               getContentPane().add(helpContent);
          }
          catch (IOException e)
          {
               e.printStackTrace();
          }

          scroll = new JScrollPane();
          scroll.setViewportView(helpContent);
          scroll.setBounds(0, 0, 640, 540);
          helpPanel.add(scroll);
          getContentPane().add(helpPanel);
     }

Either use a layout manager, or add a ComponentListener to your frame and resize your pane when frame resized.
