I'm working on a page that uses this file upload applet:


But the page is xhtml and I believe I should be using <object>.
I'm finding sometimes the applet (using the <applet> tag) will load
in Firefox but not in IE.

I'm curious is this is the current recommended approach to include a
java applet:


Specifically, the "XHTML (using object tag)" shown at the bottom.

Also, you might note that the <apple> example from the first link
has a "codebase" and then relative archives:

    archive="myuploader-free-signed-v161.jar, labels.jar"

What I'm doing instead is using *not* using the codebase and instead
using full urls for the two jar files.  Can I do that also with
