Hi again...

I am almost totally fed up with the state of applets in browsers these days

work at all. (They work in appletviewer.) See here: (Try clicking on the text

it only stops the plug-in (instead of printing a stack trace)...

IcedTea/Firefox with OBJECT/EMBED tag: Just hangs. Gray area. Check here:

This is all really confusing... :[
