I have tried to run examples of applet under windows98 but they don't work; if I call the document.xslControl.getHtmlText() i obtain a null string. Here the example code, it run in saxon directory:
 
<body onLoad="alert(document.xslControl.getHTMLText())">
<div id="target"></div>
<applet 
      name="xslControl"
      code="com.icl.saxon.XSLTProcessorApplet.class"
      archive="saxon.jar"
      height="0"
      width"0">
      <param name="documentURL" value="saxonApplets.xml"/> 
      <param name="styleURL" value="s1ToHTML.xsl"/>
    </applet>
 
</body>
 
Thanks a lot
