Anchor around applet. How to jump to HREF when someone clicks on the applet?

If the code on my HTML page looks something like

<A HREF="xpto.html">
<APPLET
   ...
</APPLET>
</A>

then how can I code my applet so that when someone clicks on it, they go to the xpto.html page? I don't want to code the jump-to-URL in the applet, I want the browser to do it. How can this be done? I'm using MSVisual J++.

           getAppletContext().showDocument( add);
