Hello Mike:

To get the browser to navigate to any URL, pass in the URL object to:

getAppletContext().showDocument(url);

To get a new browser window to pop up, use the same method (overloaded) and
pass in the URL and a frame name - in this case "_blank":

getAppletContext().showDocument(url, "_blank");

HTH,

Tom Duffy
