[visad] Applet in VisAD [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Hi All,

I have had trouble making an applet using VisAD. So I did the following.

I got an example Applet from
  http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/~curtis/applet/VisADApplet.java

When I ran this with appletviewer I got the following
for various releases of VisAD.

Any ideas?

Cheers
