DESCRIPTION:  The page http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gl)/wx/satellite.rxml has
linked pages that are complex JavaScript weather image viewers (allows browsing
archives, animating, etc.).  Right now they're not working, and there are some
other problems.

I'm filing this bug and assigning it to myself to figure out what's wrong here,
and I'll file (or find) specific bugs as needed and mark them as dependencies.

DOES NOT WORK CORRECTLY ON:
 * Linux, apprunner, 1999-11-08-08-M11

WORKS CORRECTLY ON:
 * Linux NN 4.61
Depends on: 18295, 18297, 18301
It turns out there's a Java applet in the page, so it shouldn't work
completely.  However, there are three existing bugs I've already filed on the
page (marked as dependencies).

If I get the external Java runtime working, then maybe I can test more.  (Should
such things work yet?)  The page uses some JS/Java interaction.

There's also a potential layout compatibility issue on all the subpages.  There
are scrollbars on the bottom frame that don't appear in other browsers.  It has
to do with a 55px table in a 55px frame (height).  There's some occurrence of
bug 5821 inside the table (because of whitespace, that should be eliminated by
the fix for bug 5821, I think), but that's not the real problem.  The real
problem either has to do with compatibility about body margins when the only
child is a table or about frame attributes such as scrolling=no.  I may
investigate further...

I believe the JS/Java interaction should work if you have the Java plugin
correctly installed.

Are there still problems with this site?  All of the dependencies have been
fixed, and it seems to be working for me.

A newer version of the given URL is
http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gh)/wx/satellite.rxml though a lot of the same
code is being executed.
