I am trying to load an applet that requires Java 1.6. I am running MacOS 10.5.8 on an Intel machine with all updates installed. Java Preferences shows the following boxes checked:



I went to the Sun Java test site, and it told me my Java version was J2SE Runtime 5 Update 28.

This page gave instructions for changing Java versions by changing a symlink in the Java versions library.



So the OS is now telling me that the default version of Java is version 1.6.

However, even after restarting my computer, I still can't load the applet, and Sun is still telling me that I am running J2SE Runtime 5.

I see the same symptoms in both Safari 5.0.5 and Firefox 3.6.17.

Any ideas on how to convince my browsers to use Java 1.6?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
