I have a rtf file that I am reading in from the file system adding some text and writing the rtf. How can I go about changing the font of the inserted text. This is my class so far:

// Read in
FileInputStream _in = new FileInputStream("c:\\temp\\in.rtf");
RTFEditorKit rtfEditorKit = new RTFEditorKit();
Document document = rtfEditorKit.createDefaultDocument();
rtfEditorKit.read(_in,document,0);
_in.close();

// Insert text
Position pos = document.createPosition(10);
document.insertString(pos.getOffset(),"Inserted Text",rtfEditorKit.getInputAttributes());

// Write output
resp.setContentType("text/rtf");
OutputStream _out = resp.getOutputStream();
rtfEditorKit.write(_out, document,0,document.getLength());
_out.close();

Not sure if this will help but try to use the StyleConstants.setFontFamily(attr, <family name>); The "attr" parameter should be an object of type MutableAttributeSet. For more info:
