Best I've seen is JavaVersionApplet - Andrew Thompson here has it.
MUST compile it under jdk 1.1.8 or less for it to work correctly in msie.
Then, as the "redirect," parameter, have it point to the autoinstall page at
SUN, i.e:

<param NAME="redirect" VALUE="">This all
works like a charm. Hth, Ike"circuit_breaker" <>
