What is the "best"/easiest/most reliable way to detect an applet has finished loading (in all, if possible, browsers)? I want to have my surrounding html code (text, images, etc..,) not show up until the applet has fully loaded / displayed. Thanks.

Logically, it would be when the init method completes execution.

I'm not looking to find out where in the applet code itself it has finishes loading. I'm looking to find out when the applet has finishing loading from the html side hence how do I (i) check using some property of the applet that it has finished or (ii) is there a way to communicate back to the html page maybe through a javascript call from the applet.
