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.

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.
