the code snippet is:

public void itemStateChanged(ItemEvent e) {

try {
Image sunday = getAppletContext().getImage(new URL(getCodeBase() + "sunday.gif"));
Image wednesday = getAppletContext().getImage(new URL(getCodeBase() + "wednesday.gif"));
Image thursday = getAppletContext().getImage(new URL(getCodeBase() + "thursday.gif"));
// URL url=new URL(getCodeBase().toString()+"info.txt");
URL url = new URL("ftp://username:passoword@schoolme.site90.com/public_html/Practice_page/info.txt";);
BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(url.openStream()));

jLabel12.setText( br.readLine());

Have you tried to access your Txt file directly in a web browser. If you cannot, it could be that the file server doesn't allow access to txt extension.
