      Description

      I have a java swing applet that I can display in any of ie5.0, Navigator 4.7, or Navigator 6.0. So far so good. Because it is a swing applet, I must use the <OBJECT>/<EMBED> tag scheme instead of the <APPLET> tag.

      The problem is when I try to call the methods of the java applet from javascript. In the case of ie5.0, I can call document.objectname.javamethod() and it will work. However, it does not work in Netscape 6 with Java plugin 1.3.0_01.

      The html and a test applet are attached.
