    Ticker Tape 1.0 does not run on newer browsers

    RE: Ticker Tape 1.0, copyright 2000 by Goodwin Software (free software available on The Java Boutique)

    The scrolling ticker tape does not load when you are trying to view it on a newer system with a new browser. Older computers running older browsers do not have any problems displaying the ticker tape. Has anyone else noticed this problem or have an explanation or have a way to fix this?

    To see an example of what I am talking about, I have the ticker tape on the index page of this website: www.palestineRCS.org. I can not view the ticker tape on my new Microsoft Windows XP Media Centre Edition, Version 2002. However, I know that the ticker tape is still working on older systems/browsers.

    It doesn't load properly...

    I get this on my java console in IE:
    load: class TickerTape.class not found.
    java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: TickerTape.class

    When I right-click on the "X" on the location of the ticker tape, I get the error message:

    APPLET tag missing CODE parameter.
    java.lang.NullPointerException: name

    What does this mean?
