Mac OS 9.1, build 2001071903 (branch, not trunk): Go to the URL specified and click on "Chat." It will ask you to enter a nickname (any one will do from what I've seen). Once you do so, a Java applet for chatting will load. The text that appears in this chat window is nothing more than escape codes (I think that's the term for them). I am using the latest version of MRJ (2.2.5). The chat room won't even BEGIN to load on Netscape 6.1 PR1 but loads fine on Netscape Communicator 4.77.

FWIW, WORKSFORME Win2k 2001-07-25-0.9.2
Confirmed under 2001071903, except the results I see are a "Java.lang.nullPointerException" error dialog. I'm also running MRJ 2.2.5 under Mac OS 9.1. It works under Mac IE 5.0 (2022).
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Problem persists as noted earlier on build 2001080110 (0.9.3 branch). While I do see the java.lang.nullPointerException quite often with Mozilla, I am not seeing this here. I thought it might have been an MRJ problem until you mentioned that IE handles it fine. A similar problem occurs on this site: http://registrar.ua.edu/ While the Java scrolling news applet is readable, the text styles that are visible under Communicator 4.7x show up as their open and close tags under Mozilla.
Also note that if you click on the "DAG" link on that site, you get a java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBounds exception twice. Under Communicator 4.7x, this loads a Java applet that initially shows a button which upon clicking will launch a new window with information related to degrees at the University of Alabama.
(Just for clarification, "that site" mentioned in the previous comment is the UA site, not the Big Brother site.)

This "Big Brother 2" web site in general has been very problematic for Netscape 6.1 -- it fails to recognize that I have Flash installed, and trying to load any embedded RealPlayer video results in a crash or freeze. The site may not be maintained for much longer now that the show has ended, but it would be nice for future CBS web sites not to have these problems.
On build 2001121008 (Mac OS 9.2.2) I now get Java errors instead of any chat loading. The first time I tried I crashed (after having visited many other sites), but the second time it simply gave me the errors.
Original problem applet no longer exists, so this bug cannot be fixed. However, the similar problem at http://registrar.ua.edu/ still exists and has been reported as bug 149814.
