Hi folks,
First of all, I'm really sorry for bugging you with my problem. -I can imagine that dumb problems like mine are getting on your nerves, but, just like my status says, I'm a greenhorn.
After having programmed some simple stuff, I tried to get applets to work on HTML pages. So, I worked my way through's pages. I downloaded the HTML Converter just to learn that I need another Plug-In, some JRE. What is the deal about that. Is it really that complicated to get applets to work on my Internet Explorer!?

It's not really that complicated. Simply download the latest version of the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) v1.3. Then you'll be able to see all your applets in your html document. Netscape 6 comes automatic with 1.3 I think. However, if you put your stuff on the web, your visitors also must have the JRE to see your applets.

The reason you have to use HTML Converter is because IE doesn't support the latest versions of Java in their browser. If you restrict yourself to Java 1.1 applets (and AWT only, no Swing... ), you won't need to go to all the trouble of converting your applets.... however, you also won't be able to use all the cool new stuff added in the 3 most recent versions of Java...

Also, if you're just doing testing, you can always just run it in appletviewer...
