Perhaps this is where I'm getting a little confused... just what is the 
difference between the java applets that have to be compiled 
beforehand... and the javascript that is in the HTML?  Wouldn't they both 
in the end have the same results, with just a few minor detailed 
changes?  Either way... what differences are there in the end?

I was under the assumption that they would be the same... oh well... 
guess that's what i get for assuming. :)  Any info on this would be more 
than appreciative.
