Hi,
   Is it possible ( or easy ) to pass values back from an Applet into the HTML page it was called from? A friend is writing a colour picker which works really well... only he isn't sure how to make that available in the html page or if its even possible.... I don't know either so I thought I'd ask the gurus :)

thanks in advance!

Yes. You can call the applet from JavaScript and vice versa.

Although it's easier to call public methods of the applet from JavaScript using a reference:

var applet = document.applets[0];
var x = applet.foo();

you can also do it the other way around:
