If you do, do it, I would like to see the results. I suggest using the=20
Jython 2.2 (new release), because it has been out for a while and will=20
probably match future jython release. Also, I suggest jar'ing the python=20
code if you can as opposed to using pure java classes. I attempted to creat=
a applet recently, but my web-hosted didnt like the java HTML framework and=
wouldn't let me upload jython.jar?
