The Java sandbox rules were written with the realization that morally-deficit people would like to write applets that are in one way or other invisible in order to to Bad Things. So they've made it virtually impossible for such applets to run. Now if you're looking for an applet that simply consists of the entire window display area, that's doable - give or take any warning borders the browser may mandate. The tricky part is that the applet area cannot grow or shrink as the window is resized, and the only way to even get the applet to properly fit the user's window is to set up the applet size based on the window size of the request that downloaded the applet.
"privilege" comes from the Latin words for "private" and "law" (legal) and dates to feudal times. To "claim privilege" meant that you were above the laws that applied to the common people.

No Tim, I was just wondering if I could use an Applet as a background and have content over it. I was hoping that I missed something in my training but I guess I was not I take it that I was trained by good instructors. Thanks for the reply.
