I echo the comments of others. The page looks great and the
animations work (Safari and 10.3.3).
Now a question. I have been out of the loop for a while fighting the
shingles. (Some of you guys in the industry need to "invent" something
to deal with the painful aftermath!!). I note that in pre-9 and
perhaps its predecessor, there is a properties file related to the
applet. What does one do with this? Place it in the same directory
as the applet on the web site?

The *idea* was/is as follows:
* place the file JmolApplet.properties in the same directory as the
* use it as a place to store _standard_ properties for your web site.
For example, you can say 'bgcolor=LemonChiffon' in the
JmolApplet.properties file and then you do not have to put it in every
one of your [applet] clauses in your html pages.
This seemed to have more use back when there were more script parameters.
(things like style, zoom, etc.) But I have been trying to get rid of those
things in an attempt to generally move to script commands.
This code has probably not been tested in some time, but it probably
hasn't decayed too badly.
That same file also serves to denote servers that are used by the
JmolAppletProxy.cgi ... a scheme for fetching data from databases (like
the pdb). That code also hasn't been tested in a while, but should still
