this is for a browser window that contains a chat app that is an applet... when browser window is not in focus I would like users to somehow get notified when a message arrives, more or less like regular IM apps do.. I did with window.focus(), but I don't really want window to come into focus, I just want it to 'blink' and then stay highlighted.. I tried window.setActive() method (not sure what that method does but wanted to try it) but I get obj-non-supported error in IE6 with that method.. would appreciate any suggestions.. thank you very much..

window.focus() is really the only thing that you could use.

Could use those classic title scrollers that could scroll the titlte of a browser, but that will not really help.
