The histology applet works with the Java 1.1 or newer virtual machine, a component of your browser.

The histology applet works on all current browsers in Windows, and on Internet Explorer on the Macintosh with the Mac OS Runtime for Java patch. However it is known NOT to work on any current version of Netscape for the Macintosh. It is hoped that future versions of Netscape will catch up to the industry standard.

Known behavior by platform and browser:

Macintosh Internet Explorer 4.01 o.k.
Macintosh Internet Explorer 4.5
