Is that all your browser says? Have you had a look at the output
on the 'Java Console' of your browser (on Netscape/Linux that is
under 'Comunicator > Tools > Java Console').

If you have <applet> - tags than that would be an <applet> and
not a servlet. Since this is code that gets executed on the client
side there should be no problem puting it on the server.
