Thanks John, Lane & Tom,

Ok, I guess I'll be waiting for that then.

First, the "java loading" delay bugs me - several seconds,
and second it gives the client the impression that the flash page was done
in Java, stealing the credit from Flash.
I actually had someone write & ask me how hard it was to write that
animation in Java!

This is not to discredit the great & essential work done by MM people like
Slavik Lozben on the Java Player. The rendering and playback on the new
mac version is *a lot* better than it used to be; I have no problems with
it except that it's still a full-third+ slower than the plug-n, but it
seems to be getting better all the time. If it ever gets to be as fast as
the plug-n on the mac, it will really change things. Perhaps some day
we'll see an "Export as Applet" item in the Flash file menu? Wouldn't a
native applet be faster than a player applet interpteting a swf file?
