Subject Re: 2 Fonts in 1 Cell - ByteArrayInputStream
Date Sat, 03 Dec 2005 11:16:47 GMT
Hello Christian

Must admit I did not quite believe it myself but you
can indeed set two - or more - fonts on a single
string in one cell. But I think that you face one huge
problem.

I could be wrong but I think that HSSF uses the
Excel97 format as standard and as you indicate below,
it may only be possible to use two fonts in one cell
in Excel versions 2000 on.
