Is there a good web page or book covering all the wackiness about applets? I find I'm struggling with appletisms all the time.

I have not found that magical book yet. It takes a lot of digging on the Java Developers Connection, and investigation into browsers and how they handle the same code in different ways.
The biggest problem is the way different browsers, along with their jre and plug-in(s) handle the same code. Although their stuff might be Sun complient, there are still MANY differences in the way its executed!!
I hate to say it, but we need more standards for this issue!! Seems I saw a lawsuit that addressed part of this issue.......
Best Regards,
Matt
