I have written a Java Applet using JDK 1.2.2 It compiles cleanly with no
deprecated methods or anything. I created an html file to run the applet
and when I run this using the appletviewer in JDK 1.2.2, and it works perfectly.
However, the same html, when veiwed through either IE5 or Netscape (Communicator
4.6) shows the applet box, and indicates 'Applet Started' in the status bar,
but the applet doesn't appear to run (or if it is running, I can't see it).
I have tried running the sample html files that come with JDK 1.2.2 the
same way, and they all work fine, so I know my browsers are set up to run
Java - where am I going wrong? Has anyone had similar problems?

Any help, advice, or even sympathy, would be gratefully received!
