Make an applet fill the browser window

I have an applet, and I want it to fill all the browser window. To do this, I have this HTML, which works fine (note the 100%):

<applet
  width    = "100%"
  height   = "100%"
  codebase = "."
  code     = "servidor.AppletWrapper.class"
  archive  = "servidor.jar"
  name     = "TestApplet"
>

But, although the applet area of the web page fills the browser window, the actual window inside it, my app's window, does not fill all the area, and I don't know why.
The only thing my applet class does is to crate an instance of a JPanel derived class and add it to itself. This is done in the constructor of the applet:

    MyPanel panel = new MyPanel();
    public AppletWrapper()
    {
        add(panel);
    }

The JPanel derived class contains all the controls, and has BorderLayout.
If you need more info please ask.

have a look at this site:

Javascript plays important part here.

Thanks for the answer, but I'm starting to suspect that the problem has nothing to do with applets or browsers, because I have created an application wrapper for the applet (in order to run it standalone) and I have the same problem, when I maximize the window, the JPanel doesn't fill all of it.

Forget it, I solved it by using a BorderLayout

try something like this:

 MyPanel panel = new MyPanel();
 
 public AppletWrapper implements ComponentListener()
    {
        add(panel);
        addComponentListener(this);
    }

   public void componentResized(ComponentEvent e){
       panel.resize(this.getWidth(),this.getHeight());
   }

  ...leave other methods empty

It was not an applet or browser issue, as I had first suspected. I solved it by using a BorderLayout layout manager in the JPanel, and putting everything in the center of it. Thanks for your time.
