RE: Questions about Contour2D class

The path of least resistance doesn't go through Contour2D.
If it did, we would discuss Contour2D in our tutorial and
other docs.

See section 3.5 and 3.6 of the tutorial. Applets are tricky
with 3-D. See visad/examples/Test68.java for an example of
one way to send displays to Applets. You can also just call
the getImage() method of DisplayImpl and send the returned
BufferedImage to your Applet.

Good luck,
Bill
