1.) Visit http://java.sun.com/applets/ and click on Java Glossary under Other
Applets, or visit the above URL.
What happens: I get two java error dialog boxes, and then the page does not display.

Is this a 1.2 applet? (is there any way to tell?)  Apple is only going up
to JDK 1.1.8 on OS' < OS X.  The "Applet display problems?" advice could
imply that 1.2 is required.


Also doesn't display on iCab pre2.4 and IE 5.0, but they don't have the dialog
boxes coming up.

The problem doesn't seem to be with the glossary applet as such.  The given URL
doesn't work with iCab or IE, either.  The first of the following html works for
iCab and IE, but not Mozilla.  The second works for all three.  So Mozilla at
least has a problem with the <PARAM NAME> tag.  All three browsers or MRJ itself
has a problem with something about the original <OBJECT or <COMMENT> <EMBED
html.  See also bug #8839 as this is identical behavior.  Here's the html:

<!-- refer to glossary myself for bug #60236 -->
<!-- using MacOS 9.1, MRJ 2.2.3, Swing 1.1.1 -->
<!-- this approach works in iCab 2.4, IE 5.0 -->
<!-- but not in Mozilla 0.8, MRJPlugin 1.0b2 -->
<html>
<head>
<title>Glossary</title>
</head>
<body>
<applet
    codebase="http://192.9.48.9/applets/glossary/"
    archive=glossary.jar width=500 height=400>
    <param name = code value = "glossary.Main" >
    <param name = archive value = "glossary.jar" >
</applet>
</body>
</html>

and the html that works for mozilla (note the lack of <PARAM NAME>):

<!-- refer to glossary myself for bug #60236 -->
<!-- using MacOS 9.1, MRJ 2.2.3, Swing 1.1.1 -->
<!-- this approach works in iCab 2.4, IE 5.0 -->
<!-- AND in Mozilla 0.8, MRJPlugin 1.0b2 -->

<html>
<head>
<title>Glossary</title>
</head>
<body>
<applet
    codebase = "http://192.9.48.9/applets/glossary/"
    code = glossary.Main
    archive = glossary.jar
    width=500 height=400>
</applet>
</body>
</html>

More trial and error reveals that there IS a way to get Mozilla to respond to
the OBJECT tag, but in a way which seems counter to the Sun documentation.  Note
that there are no PARAM NAME's and that codebase is not used for the plugin, but
for the applet.  Here 'tis:

<!-- (looking at bug #60236) -->
<!-- using MacOS 9.1, MRJ 2.2.3, Swing 1.1.1 -->
<!-- this approach works Mozilla 0.8, MRJPlugin 1.0b2 -->
<!-- though the syntax seems illegal -->
<!-- the OBJECT tag doesn't work in iCab or IE -->
<html>
<head>
<title>Glossary</title>
</head>
<body>
<object classid="clsid:8AD9C840-044E-11D1-B3E9-00805F499D93"
    width = "500" height = "400"
    codebase = "http://192.9.48.9/applets/glossary/"
    code = glossary.Main
    archive = glossary.jar
</object>
</body>
</html>

Just noticed bug #39047 looks to be the same with regards to the OBJECT tag.
