+
+<UL>
+	<B>Note: You must be running a <A HREF="problems.html">JDK 1.1 compliant web browser</A> to view the applets on
+	this page.</B>

+</APPLET>
+</CENTER>
+Wait until the Jython library has completely loaded before continuing.
+This library is about 200K and should take around 1 minute to download 
+over a 28.8 modem. You should expect considerably faster download times
+if you have a better network connection.
+<em>Here is the <a href="JythonLoader.java">Java source</a> code for the 
+Jython loading display you see above.</em>
+
+<P>Once the library has loaded, your first Jython applet will appear below:
+<CENTER>
+<APPLET ARCHIVE="appletdemo.jar" CODE="HelloWorld" WIDTH="160" HEIGHT="50" ALIGN="BOTTOM" alt="This browser doesn't support JDK 1.1 applets.">
+<PARAM NAME="cabbase0" VALUE="appletdemo.cab">
+<H3>Something has gone wrong loading this applet.</H3>
+</APPLET>
+</CENTER>
+If you don't see the text &quot;Hello from Jython!&quot; above, 
+then something has gone wrong.
+See <A HREF="problems.html">what to do when Jython applets don't work</A> 
+for suggestions on how to fix the problem.
+
+<P>The complete source code for this applet is displayed below: <BR>
+
+<blockquote><pre>
+<HR>
+from java.applet import Applet
+
+class HelloWorld(Applet):
+    def paint(self, g):
+        g.drawString(&quot;Hello from Jython!&quot; 20, 30)
