5.2. Java Applets

Java applets are a widely supported means of adding advanced functionality to your web site without requiring multiple plugins, although Java can be slow to load. All current browsers support Java (although it creates some screen refresh problems in IE5.5), although users can turn off Java support within their browsers.

To add a Java applet to your Dreamweaver document select Insert Media Applet or use the Insert Applet icon in the Object panel's Special category (see Figure 5-1). Select the applet's .class file in the Select File dialog box. As with Flash and Shockwave objects, Dreamweaver creates the HTML for you and uses a placeholder to represent the Applet position in your document, as shown in Figure 5-13.
