removing "Java Applet window" label

i'm working on an html editor in java and i have a pretty basic question. we need the editor to be cross-platform (hence the java) and for the appearence to be relatively streamlined. i'm using a lot of dialoges and i noticed that the label placed by the browser (the one that says "Java Applet window") is not a standard size, and will infringe upon some of the components in the window. i had been testing in IE and Firefox, which both look fine, but today i noticed that Mozilla 1.6 has a taller bar at the bottom, which is, for example, obscuring a row of colors in the color-selection-dialog i created. if anyone can tell me how to get rid of that label, or force it to conform to dimensions i specify, i would greatly appreciate it.

Well one way would be to write a Java application rather than an applet. Is there any compelling reason to make it an applet? It seems to me that by embedding the application into a browser (which is what applets are) all you are doing is reducing the amount of screen available to the application.

PS. I never been a big fan of Java Applets

The warning is a security feature of all web browsers. If you are creating a signed applet, then you can configure the Java Plug-in to omit the warning message. Another path is configuring JWindow/Window, which requires setting up a security manager (so your secure applet will tell not to provide a warning) and possibly alterning the system property awt.appletWarning (for unsecure applets).
