Multiple Font types in one TextArea

Is it possible to have more than one font type in a text area? I have tried, but I can only change the whole text area component.

It is not possible to use more than one font type in a java.awt.TextArea component. To achieve this functionality without writing your own special component, you should consider using the Swing package. The Swing JEditorPane supports the use of multiple fonts. See the question titled "Text editing functions in Java" in the AWT/Swing answer section for example code.
