Hi Dan. According to Firefox on F9 using GCJ aka Iced Tea, when accessing the 
site above, I get a bit of stuff for at&t at the top of the page, but no 
applet. At the bottom of the Firefox window it says: Start: applet not 
initialized.

By contrast, Firefox on my FC2 install, with Sun's JRE installed, runs the 
applet with no problemo.

All I can suggest is downloading, and installing the JRE from Sun, if you want 
to use this site. See below.
