Applets and monochrome displays

I've tested an applet together with a monochrome display.
No Images were displayed by the browser.
I don't wanted to test the applet on a monochrome display,
but I wanted to test it under Solaris.
I don't think that it is the different OS?!

 felgen, it would be easier to answer if you can clarify your question. Is your question about the behavior of java under monochrome display, or is it about the different behavior between some operating system to Solaris?

I've tested the applet under Windows 95/NT with color displays
and everything works fine. Then I've tested it under Solaris, but this machine only has a monochrome display. The Applet is running, but images aren't displayed. I don't think the reason for that is different behavior between windows and Solaris.
So am I right that the reason for none displayed images
is the use of a monochrome display and if the answer is yes, is there a way to avoid this. If I am wrong my question is how can
I avoid that images aren't displayed under Solaris.

Now IE 4.0 is available under Unix I've tested with IE 4.0.
I could see much more then using the Navigator, but not every
Image was displayed fine. So I think, it's a problem of the
browser that displaying images from within java.

It could be even that the Navigator you have does not have JDK1.1 support.

Be sure that the depth of the monochrome display is 256 or more colors (i.e., 8 or more bit planes)
use xdpyinfo or xwininfo commands for this. If it is less you cant display the image.
This is the limitation of java language .
