The only problem with this is, if any of the platforms are
Windows-based, you just about HAVE to use a browser (Netscape or IE 3x
or higher) to run Java applets. Of course, if you run any advanced
OS's such as OS/2 or any of the Unix variants, you can run Java applets
directly... (I know, I know, this is "right around the corner" for
Windows... isn't everything?)
