Hello all
I am using the <applet> tag to show my applet on the xhtml page. It works and displays fine on my university computer but at home it shows a grey box?
Can anyone help me?

If you've got a nice shiny new computer at home running Windows XP and IE6, chances are that there's no Java installed. Microsoft stopped providing one and unless Sun wins another lawsuit, they don't intend to ever provide Java with Windows again.
One way to get around this problem is to use the Java Plug-In, which you can find here. Unlike the Java that came with older versions of IE and Netscape, the Java Plug-In system allows you to run with the latest version of Java and thus to use Swing and other advanced features. However, it's about a 5MB download.
