I'm trying to use CFSLIDER on CF 7 and all I'm getting is a box with a gray border and an image with an "X" inside the border.  I'm assuming the java class or something isn't being recognized but I'm not sure.  Any ideas?
<cfform>
<cfslider name="myslider" range="1,100" lookandfeel="windows">
</cfform>

from CFML Reference for <CFSLIDER>:

"This tag requires the client to download a Java applet. [...] Also, if the client does not have an up-to-date Java plugin installed, the system might also have to download an updated Java plugin to display the tag.
For this tag to work properly, the browser must be JavaScript-enabled."

i must confess, i have never used <cfslider> tag myself... with so many javascript-based sliders in all imaginable forms and styles, i really do not see any use for a java applet-based slider...

check out jQuery UI slider: http://jqueryui.com/demos/slider/
(tip: try the little gray "Theme" selector at top right of the page to style the slider examples to your liking)

PS: is this a problem specific to just <cfslider> tag? do any other cf applet-based controls work in your browser (i.e. <cfgrid>)? did you test it in other browsers?
