I have an applet that runs fine until I try to embed it into a browser. I'm on Mac OSX and I get an error running it through both Safari and Firefox. It seems to ignore the applet tag altogether.

I think it's an issue with my Java preferences. When I open the Java Prefs window I have it set to use 1.6 at the top, with 1.5 as a second choice. However, when I open the Java console, this is the result I get:

Java Plug-in 1.5.0
Using JRE version 1.5.0_26 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM
User home directory = /Users/jchapuran
c: clear console window
f: finalize objects on finalization queue
g: garbage collect
h: display this help message
l: dump classloader list
m: print memory usage
o: trigger logging
p: reload proxy configuration
q: hide console
r: reload policy configuration
s: dump system and deployment properties
t: dump thread list
v: dump thread stack
x: clear classloader cache
0-5: set trace level to <n>

Shouldn't the plug-in be 1.6? I'm not sure how to fix that, I'm sure it's a simple task but I have little experience with this. I appreciate any guidance!
