OK... I have written several applets of varying complexity, all work fine in Appletviewer, and all work fine when I view them on the Web *from the machine I wrote them on*. Any other machine and I just get the grey shading where the applet should be - these machines run any other applet I know of just fine, so I assume it's me. How could this happen? I don't see how it could possibly be using local files - I even moved them just to prove it to myself.
