somits used Ask the Experts™

We're writing some Java applet code and embed them into web pages.
We successfully compiled the java applet.
We placed the class file ( of the java applet file) in the same folder where the html file is.

For some reason,the applet  does not show up.

We tried everything to find out where is the problem but could not.

If you've some idea about this problem, please help.

We attached the code, both the applet and the web page below.
