Applets are notoriously slow so using so many is not really advisable.  It's better to use something like JavaScript for simple effects on the screen although I haven't used this particular object so I don't know what it does.

Applets are kept in the IE and NN cache so your page should load substantially faster after the first time.

Cheers,

Tom
