Applets suck.  You have to use the ARCHIVE attribute in the APPLET tag
to make it download a class archive, and I'm not sure it works for
JARs in IE.  Alternately, you could unjar jdom.jar (jar xf jdom.jar)
into the code base where your applet is.  Since your applet class is
in a package called "applet" (bad idea, by the way -- use your company
name, like com.rockysoft.MyApplet), you'd end up with



You can put all these together in a separate directory on your web
server if you use the CODEBASE attribute.

Read the docs for the APPLET tag for more information.

You should also know that you probably need to use the 1.1 JVM version
of JDOM.
