lol, that was my first thought, too.  I think she's using them so the tags
don't disappear in html enabled browsers, though.  :)

Sharon, try the applets on a blank page just in case, but the applet likely
won't work through some integral bug in netscape 6.  You couldn't fix it
without doing something in netscape 6, if it's about netscape's java
environment.  Before you damn your cause, you might want to try looking on
other computers - sometimes something like this will act funky on just one
computer and no one elses.  Otherwise... I'm stumped.  Sorry.
