I have Java 2 Plug-In installed. It is showing in my "Control Panel".
In "Internet Options", on the "Advanced" tab there is a line just below "HTTP 1.1 Settings" that reads "Java(Sun)" with Sun's logo on the left and a checkbox that is checked with a line to the right of the checkbox that reads "Use Java 2 v1.4.1_01 for <applet> (requires restart)". But yet when I run the following html code all I get is an empty gray square in the browser (Internet Explorer 6)
