We are using hoverbuttons on our webpage.   On all IE browsers except the machine that developed the website the buttons work correctly.   On the machine that developed the site with frontpage the buttons do not appear.  Instead their is a gray box and the following error at the bottom of the page:

           Applet fphover notloaded

Any ideas anyone ?

What browser? FP hover buttons are java applets, and IE 6 does NOT have java enabled unless you download it from the Sun website and install it.

webwoman has a good point, if you are using Windows XP without the service pack you will not be able to see it properly. You can view it with upgrading to Windows XP SP1 or with downloading Sun Java (http://java.sun.com).

Also, if you're looking at it with FP, you will NOT see much of anything -- anything that requires publishing will not work, javascript won't work, java applets may not ork, etc.
