Passing parameters applet to applet

Ranch Hand

I have three applets, one calls the second, second the third.
The third applet,, receives a parameter of type String.
Based on value of this parameter, ExplanatoryText creates a pop-up JFrame and displays the explanatory html file.
I've following compile-time error.
Now I know init() in is not a class, but if I use a class to receive parameters, I cannot init getCodeBase().
How does one work around this problem?

cannot resolve symbol
constructor ExplanatoryText (java.lang.String, java.lang.String)
class ExplanatoryText
......{xplnTxt = new ExplanatoryText("ShortDescription", "About Forest Fire");}

Obviously it doesn't like the way I'm passing the string parameters.
Can someone please spot where I might have gone wrong?

Following is the code for
It uses the parameter fileName as a handle and headerTxt to build the JFrame header.
On itself, it works as expected.

TIA :-)
