actually it's a TextArea - but probably doesn't make any difference?

Whenever you see something like
this:errorF.setFont(boldFont);^The ^, or caret is usu.
pointing at the problem. In
this case, the interpreter doesn't recognize the
variable errorF.The other poster on this topic is
correct. Go check your declaration for errorF. Look for
bad spelling or package  typo.

The problem was that "errorF.setFont(boldFont);" got put with the
instance vars by mistake, instead of in the constructor
