I have a chat in which I am using swing components for displaying emoticons (.gif) and sound (.wav). It is running perfectly in IE 5.5 and above, but is not loading on IE 5.0 even after downloading and installing java plugins. It is giving the error "exception:checkpackagedefinition." and the page freezes saying "loading java applet" If required, I can send the code files of HTML & JAVA APPLET. TIA!
