Animation Help

To view the Animations you must be using Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher (see http://www.microsoft.com) or Netscape 4.5 or higher (see http://www.netscape.com).

Special notes for Macintosh Users:

  • Java Virtual Machine:
    Your browser must be using the  Apple Mac OS Runtime for Java (MRJ) (version 2.0 or higher). Apple MRJ is automatically installed with Mac OS 8.1 and higher. Apple MRJ can also be installed under MacOS 7.6.6 or higher but this configuration is not supported by Apple (to download Apple MRJ go to http://www.apple.com). See “Browsers” section below for how to set your Java Virtual Machine.

  • Browser:
            - Microsoft Internet Explorer
    To set your Java Virtual Machine to Apple MRJ: Under Internet Explorer go to Preferences under the Edit Menu. From the Preference dialog select Java and choose “Apple MRJ” as your Java Virtual Machine. After changing your Java Virtual Machine you must quit the browser and restart it.

           - Netscape
    Netscape 4.x does not give you the choice of using Apple MRJ Java Virtual Machine. The java version of the animations cannot be viewed using Netscape 4.x or earlier on a MacIntosh. We plan to have non-java versions up soon. For the latest information on Netscape’s Java support see http://www.netscape.com.

  • Hardware:
    Minimum of Power PC with 48 megabytes of RAM.
