Running applets on IE with java 1.4.1

Anyone have any problems doing this?
I have been using Safari mostly, and that is working pretty well (it's still a beta though). But I had to try an applet yesterday and it wouldn't load in IE. After mucking around in various directories I finally found a rather terse message in the Console that said "Java not loaded." Whoo, talk about "that's a big help."
I think it stopped working after I d/l the update to jdk 1.4. There's now two plug-in utility programs, one for "Java Plugin" and one for "Java Plugin 1.3". The 1.3 version had it's "enable java" checkbox un-checked, and I think IE is just assuming that the jdk version on OSX will always be 1.3. Very strange. Anyway, after clicking that checkbox, my applets run in IE again, but under the 1.3 jdk. I couldn't find any references on the internet or on the apple site about how to make IE use the 1.4 plugin.
I noticed the same sort of thing happened to me in Opera on Windows; I actualy had to change a registry setting to make it use the 1.4 jdk, so maybe there's something similar on the Mac?
Anyone have any ideas?

While I have no idea about the question , did you hear that IE on the Mac isn't being developed anymore?

Yup I did. That's ok, safari is a much better browser anyway.
I found out that because MS isn't doing any more developement on IE for Mac, that they aren't going to support the 1.4 plugin for IE. Maybe some third-party will pick up the slack, but at least I know where I stand with MS.

While I realise this is a terribly old thread, I thought I'd point out these links to anyone who might search the forums looking for how to get other browsers than Safari to use a higher java version than 1.3 on MacOSX:

About Java Embedding Plugin
Java Embedding Plugin on SourceForge

It certainly worked for me
