Can I use a Frame or a JInternalFrame in a applet?  How can I visualize an applet with a Frame or JInternalFrame in a browser?

I do have a JInternalFrame in an applet.  When I run it in an appletviewer it appear OK, with all its JMenuBar, JMenu and JMeniItem.  But whem a run it in a browser it does not appear at all, just a blanked space.

Below is a code of a simple applet with a JInternalFrame or a JLabel.  If the JLabel is on(without comment) the Applet Viewer shows the label.   But if the JInternalFrame is on, the Applet Viewer will not show the JInternalFrame.  Both the .class and .html is in the same directory.

The .html file is as simple as:
<applet code=TesteJInternalFrame.class with=400 height=300></applet>

If you run this html file above with JLabel on it will show the label.  But if the JInternalFrame is on it will show just a grey space(400x300).

WHAT I HAVE TO DO TO SEE THE JInternalFrame running in a browser

import javax.swing.*;
import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class TesteJInternalFrame extends JApplet {
  JInternalFrame frame;      

  public void init() {
//  JLabel label = new JLabel("LABEL");
  frame  =  new JInternalFrame("JInternalFrame Created in Applet");
  Container c = getContentPane();
//  c.add(label);

What I do want is an APPLET and not an standalone program.  If my class TesteJInternalFrame extends JFrame The applet does not exist anymore.

Please, take my example described above and tell me how to see that applet in a browser.
