Using Chimera 0.6 I find that the news ticker java applet at the web site http:// news.bbc.co.uk fails to load with the error... java.lang ClassNotFoundException lightticker2.class This applet functions properly in Internet Explorer 5.2.2.
WorksForMe using Chimera/2002110415 on 10.1.5 to access the non-UK version of the page at <http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi.html>.
Using the specified url, the applet intializes and displays (for me) in the 2002-11-05-04 NB. Tested with 10.2.1.
It loads for me in 0.5 & 0.6 but doesn't function correctly it should allow you to click on it to follow a link to the story on the ticker. It also corrupts all the graphics on the page when you scroll up and down. I have tested this on 4 machines ranging from 10.1 to 10.2 and most of the recent builds of Chimera
Since the applet loads now, I'm marking this wfm. Comment 3 sounds related to 172688.
