applet HTML

HTML <applet> Tag

The HTML <applet> tag is not supported in HTML5. To embed the Java applet in an HTML document, the HTML <applet> tag was used, but was deprecated in HTML 4.0. The HTML <object> and HTML <embed> elements are used in HTML 5 instead of the HTML <applet> tag. Along with the HTML <applet> tag, the use of Java applet is also deprecated. The use of plugins is not supported by most of the browsers nowadays.

Syntax:

<applet code="URL" height="300" width="200">.............</applet>

Example:

<!DOCTYPE html>  
<html>  
<body>  
<p>Example</p>  
<applet code="Shapes.class" align="right" height="300" width="400">  
<b>Java is needed to see this example.</b>  
</applet>  
</body>  
</html>
