Since I had a fiddle with Eclipse, such that it uses Java 1.3 to run applets, no applets will load (on _any_ site).
I've checked all of the IE settings, and have rebooted, etc.. but no luck.
The problem, really, is that I cannot remember what option I set in eclipse to make it load applets using 1.3... lol. <slaps head>.
So.. how can I change it back to 1.5 ? :-)
