Running Applet

I am learning to write applets. I have a IE 4.0 browser and Jdk1_0_2 compiler which I downloaded from the site. I am trying to write the simple helloworld applet ,but i dont see the applet running.My browser is java enabled. I saved the HelloWorld in the bin directory and at the dos prompt did javac which creatd a .classfile. In the same bin directory I saved the HelloWorldApplet.html file,which saved the file with the IE icon. On clicking on this file I dont see the applet but plain html code written to the browser. Could somebody tell me what could be wrong or what are the steps to be followed.

Can you show us the html and the Java code?  They shouldn't be very long.

Possibly the default action for .html in your Windows environment is 'edit' and not 'open'.  Try going into your Browser and doing a File>Open on the html document.  That should work.
