      Description

      One request has arrived from a licensee in Japan.

      When we invoke an applet with plug-in(1.3.0_01 or later),
      we can see some messages on the browser window like "Enhanced Applet
      Progress Reporting" at the following web site.

       http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/guide/plugin/plugin.html

      These messages can be seen by even End-Users also.

      REQUESTS:
        - To add some option which can control visible/invisible.
        Otherwise,
        - To add some feature which can re-direct the massage to Java
          Console Window.

      Because these message shows URL(some server information),
      the licensee is afraid there is a little bit problem in terms of security.
      So, they do not believe such message should be visible for end-users.
          
      There is one description at the beginning of the above Web site,
          
      "This section discusses usability enhancements made to Java Plug-in
       beginning with the Java 2 Standard Edition 1.3.0_01 release.
       *** Most are aimed at making applet debugging easier.**** "
           
      They also believe such message very useful because there has not been
      helpful way to debug an applet with Plug-in.
      However, they request that such message should be visible only
      for applet developers, not for end-users.
