I am having some problems with viewing an applet, I am quite sure if I run my HTML through the HTML converter it should straighten things out.
I have used the HTML converter once before & it was a while ago. I have just downloaded it from Sun and I cannot get it to work.
I must admit that I hate working in DOS, I followed the so called instructions Sun give for the converter and it got me nowhere.
Can someone please give a bit of help (in plain English) to getting the HTML converter installed on my machine?

Hello Dave,
If you are running the J2SDK1.4.X you should fine the html converter in this location:
***where %JAVA_HOME% = your install location of the JDK files.
The executable jar file is named: htmlconverter.jar
If you need to download the 1.3 version or later of the htmlconverter it can be downloaded from this URL:
Once you have downloaded the file, unzip it and start your Windows CMD prompt.
Navigate to the directory that contains the unzipped file using the DOS "cd" (change directory) command.
Once in the correct directory simply enter this command at the command prompt to start the html converter:
java -jar htmlconverter.jar -gui
NOTE: The name of the converter may be different. The 1.3 version is named: htmlconv1_3.jar
I hope this helps.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
