I have a jlabel in a program I am working on that I needs to display text on multiple lines. Supposedly a jlabel supports simple HTML so the following should work:

JLabel label = new JLabel("<html>New line.<br> testing</html>");      

However when the html tags are present, my jframe opens, but the text is not displayed. As soon as i remove the tags, the text is displayed, but of course not formatted correctly. It doesn't seem to matter what particular html i use inside the tags, nothing displays.
What's going on?
