I was really talking about servlets (although I didn't know it at the
time.) I have uploaded several applets and couldn't get them to execute
using iMac and IE and Netscape. I went to sun.com and used one of their
test engines. Said my browsers were ignoring the applet tag. And my
browsers say "applet error: closeing".

Ok that answers it. I don't have any intentions that ar big enough to
justify a re-config. 
Thanks for the reply,
