I am using the version of firefox and the JRE 1.6.0_01 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM version for java and the bug is still here.

The applet source code contains only 18 lines (with the import lines). Ir is WERY easy to compile and test it.

Did you try my little applet ?
Have you a version of Firefox or Java which works fine for this bug ?

Due to lack of reporter feedback and the inability to reproduce this bug, it is
being resolved as INCOMPLETE.  Reporter, feel free to reopen this bug if you
still are experiencing this issue and wish to provide us with more information
so that we can help.

Did you try to compile the little applet and launched it with the HTML page that are attached?

There is no other feedback that I can add.

Which kind of feedback do you need?
Your applet does not work using FF and Java 6 update 2.  It generates an error: "Incompatible magic value 1768779887 in class file BugShowStatus"

You are not serious at all.

I have FF and Java 6 update 2.

I tested the applet and FF nor JAVA does NOT display any error like you state.

I will attache an hard copy of the FF window with the status bar which display:
Position : N49
insteed of:
Position : N49° 28' 32''

Many thanks for your precious and very valuable help.
Armand Bendanan.

I cannot get your applet to run at all and when I check the Java Console, I see the error I specified before.  Perhaps someone else in the community with more expertise in JS would like to jump in here and help out.

I have temporary put the applet in the following web page:

The java file is in :

You can (re)compile it with the command:
# javac

Tell me if can can run the applet.

ok...I am seeing what you are seeing now.  So the status bar shows "position: N49".  What is supposed to be displayed?

According to the source code:
showStatus("Position : N49° 28' 32''");

The status bar SHOULD display:
Position : N49° 28' 32''

It seams that the status bar stop the display of the string BEFORE the '°' character.

Bizarre, no?

Java was not passing a UTF8 string correctly. Nothing we can fix. I think Java fixed this in the meantime though.
