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++.

Try this :
 URL add
 try
             {
                add = new URL("http://my.machine/File_with_applet.html#xpto.html");
             }
           catch (MalformedURLException e) {}

           getAppletContext().showDocument( add);
