No, there are no incompatibilities between Windows 98 and JDK 1.3. Java has been made to be platform-independent, right? You might try these:

1. Remove the HTML file and put the following comment in your source-code:

// I'm assuming that the source-file is AppletDemo.java

<applet code = "AppletDemo" width = 800 height = 600>

Notice that there need not be a file-extension mentioned in the code parameter "AppletDemo".

After compiling the source code, type the following command:

appletviewer AppletDemo.java

Notice that its invoking the source-file (.java) and not the class-file. Many people make the mistake of typing .class with appletviewer or not giving the extension at all - you must specify the source-file (.java) because that is the one containing the applet-tag which I have written before. Also, make sure that the case of the class-name matches that of the filename and that you specify the name of the file in the correct case while executing the appletviewer command.

2. If you want to keep the HTML file:

Write the same applet tag that I've written above in the HTML file and let's say that the name of the HTML file is AppletDemo.html (make sure that it is .html, and not .htm - even that has created a problem for me before!). Then, type the following command:

appletviewer AppletDemo.html

Otherwise, just open AppletDemo.html from Internet Explorer and your Java Applet will load.

If you still experience problems, then please post a message.
