Hello there,
I have sort of an unusual problem: Is there any way I can use an applet as a browser, i.e. interprete and display HTML and even XML? I doubt it, but I thought I'd give it a shot...
(For anyone who's wondering: mainly for security reasons...)

Even though my question was unusual, it is still quite important to me.
So, it would be a real help if anybody could tell me if there is any way to use an applet as a simple browser (interpret HTML).
Thank you.

I think perhaps you can display HTML in an applet, but an applet has to be run inside a browser. So it seems that you're asking whether a browser can be run inside a browser.

Hi,
I am not sure if this post is still relevant to you .. still I will do my bit
If you are using a Swing applet, try (javax.swing.text.html)package. It has all the classes you need to implment a HTML browser/ editor.
Hope this helps.
