You should perform the following steps to run the applet:
Current browsers do not support Java 2 as standard, which is
the technology used to develop this applet. The first time
your browser encounters this applet, it will ask you if you
want to download a Plug-in, assuming you do not already have
this software installed on your computer. This Plug-in is
the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) that your browser will
use to run the applet.
For Netscape 4 and Opera 6 users, you should click on the Plug-in
symbol in the centre of the page. This takes you to the java
site from where you can download the plugin. This can take
several attempts, as the java site is sometimes not found.
Select J2SE JRE for your language, download and install. Once
this is done, restart your browser and the applet will be able
For all other supported browsers, download the Plug-in as
requested. This download is about 8Mb,
so should take about 3 minutes with an ADSL connection.
During installation, you will be asked if you want the
Plug-in to apply to both Internet Explorer and Netscape 6.
Make sure both are selected.
Once installation is complete, you do not have to restart the
browser for the applet to commence. You will be asked if you
will grant the applet permission to run on your computer. The
certificate attached to this applet was issued by Thawte who
have verified my personal information and can assert that this
applet originated from me (Jon Godden). Please grant the
requested permission and the applet will load up.
