connecting VisAD servers to browser applets using the visad.browser package

The classes in visad.browser all conform to JDK 1.1 and so
run in web browsers.  They can be used to connect clients
in applets to VisAD displays running on servers.

The procedure to make this work correctly are now described
in:

  ftp://www.ssec.wisc.edu/pub/visad-2.0/README.browser

Note that to get netscape security to accept socket
connections from unsigned applets, it is necessary to edit
your ~/.netscape/preferences.js file.

We are looking into the issues in creating signed applets.
If anyone on the list knows about this, please feel free
to post information to this list.

Cheers,
Bill
