    Applet error: MS plug in .vs. Sun plug in

    I have a java applet (a pool effect) I've used on several web pages for quite some time. I use MS FrontPage to design web sites and IE 6 (fully patched) to browse the web. Recently I downloaded the Sun plug in as I was told MS will no longer be supporting their version of java in their browser.

    If I view the web pages I've created using this effect with MS VM selected, the applet loads and behaves properly. If I view the pages with Sun's plug in selected, the applet does not work and Sun's console lists the following error messsge(s):

    Name: PoolMenu Version 1.0

    Author: David Griffiths

    This is an interactive applet class which takes an

    image and covers it in virtual water.

    Created with Sun JDK 1.1

    I tried to visit the applet author's website for assistance, but it is no longer located at the host listed in the code. Does anyone know either how I can fix this or where I can find a version of this applet that will work with both the Sun plug in and the MS plug in?

    Thanking you in advance for any help you can offer on this issue.
