    Is that a problem with the HTML or javascript that controls the displaying of the HTML page containing the applet?

    What happens if you replace the applet with an image that uses the same space on the html page?

    I was suggesting doing some testing to find the problem. If you replace the applet and still have the problem, then the problem is not caused by the applet.

    Can you take a screen shot and post it? I can't understand how the browser would position the applet over the top of some other part of an html page without the html telling it to do that.

    Is the drop down created by the applet or by the HTML/javascript? I don't know much about javascript.

    Does javascript understand how a browser displays an applet?
    My understanding of how an applet works is that the browser gives it an area of an HTML page to display in. If some other code wants to use that same area, then it is up to the browser to control who gets to use it. The browser appears to be giving the applet full rights to the area and the other code is not able to use it.
