Okay, the following site has a really neat autocomplete java applet that would be perfect for a few places on my site where a user will want to pick one item out of a huge list of items.
What I don't know is if there is a way to put this inside a <form> element and have it post the selected value on submit.
Has anyone worked with something like this in the past? Is this even the right forum?
You may want to consider using the object tag, as the applet tag was deprecated in HTML 4.01 and is not supported in XHTML Strict.
You may not need different pages based on what the user has enabled.
If you put "default" content inside the object/applet tag it will show if the applet fails to load. eg. http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/...sc/applet.html
cross-browser examples using the object tag http://ww2.cs.fsu.edu/~steele/XHTML/appletObject.html

<param name="text" value="Welcome to HotJava!">
If you were using a Java-enabled browser such as HotJava,
you would see dancing text instead of this paragraph.
There are 4 different scenarios
But you really only need to deal with
I'm not sure how I would go about this logically but maybe you or someone else, (or me after a few more coffees) can think of something.
