Netscape 6 Supports Applets that require Java version 1.2.
Of course, it is backward compatible with the older versions.

That means that it will run most of the software out there, but not anything developed for 1.3 or 1.4.

Here's a good way to figure out what a browser supports:

Put this in a file called Version.java, then compile it:
import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.util.*;

public class Version extends Applet {
     public void paint(Graphics g) {
        g.drawString("Version = " + System.getProperty("java.version"),20, 30);
        g.drawString("Vendor = " + System.getProperty("java.vendor"),20, 50);
     }
}

Now put this is an HTML file in the same directory:

<html>
<head>
<title>Version Information Applet</title>
</head>

<body>
<h1>Java Version Information Applet</h1>
<applet code="Version.class" width="500" height="80"></applet>
</body>
</html>

Now, if you open the HTML file with a browser, an applet will pop up showing you which version of Java the browser supports.  A simple but useful utility, I hope you'll agree.

Best of luck,
John

John, again, withdraw your answer and let the person asking the question 1) provide more input, and 2) pick their own answer.

Despite wrongly posting my comment as an answer, I repeat it here as a comment:

It's time to clean up this topic area and that means taking care of this question. Your options at this point are:
 
1. Award points to the Expert who provided an answer, or who helped you most. Do this by clicking on the "Accept Comment as Answer" button that lies above and to the right of the appropriate expert's name.
 
2. PAQ the question because the information might be useful to others, but was not useful to you. To use this option, you must state why the question is no longer useful to you, and the experts need to let me know if they feel that you're being unfair.
 
3.  Ask Community Support to help split points between participating experts.  Just comment here with details.
 
4.  Delete the question because it is of no value to you or to anyone else.  To use this option, you must state why the question is no longer useful to you, and the experts need to let me know if they feel that you're being unfair.
 
If you elect for option 2, 3 or 4, just post comment with details here and I'll take it from there.  We also request that you review any other open questions you might have and update/close them.  Display all your question history from your Member Profile to view details.
 
PLEASE DO NOT AWARD THE POINTS TO ME.
