    Default Start: Applet not initiallized

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, i didnt know whether to post it under applets or under what wrong with my code...
    So, i have an applet that im trying to run in the browser with this HTML code:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
    <!-- This file automatically generated by BlueJ Java Development  -->
    <!-- Environment.  It is regenerated automatically each time the  -->
    <!-- applet is run.  Any manual changes made to file will be lost -->
    <!-- when the applet is next run inside BlueJ.  Save into a       -->
    <!-- directory outside of the package directory if you want to    -->
    <!-- preserve this file. -->
            <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
            <title>FindAddApplet Applet</title>
            <h1>FindAddApplet Applet</h1>
            <applet code="FindAddApplet.class" 
                alt="Your browser understands the &lt;APPLET&gt; tag but isn't running the applet, for some reason."
                Your browser is ignoring the &lt;APPLET&gt; tag!      

    However each time i run it i get the error "Start: Applet not initialized"...

    This is the code i am trying to run:
    import java.applet.*;
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.util.*;
    import java.awt.event.*;
    import javax.swing.JEditorPane;
    import javax.swing.*;
    public class FindAddApplet extends Applet implements ActionListener
        private JLabel jcomp1;
        private JButton nextButton;
        private JButton prevButton;
        private JPanel contentPanel;
        //content layout
        private CardLayout cardLayout;
        //jpanel cards
        ClassYearCard classYearCard;
        PeriodCard periodCard;
        NameEmailCard nameEmailCard;
        //labels for cards
        private int currentLabel = 0;
        String classYearLabel = (""+1);
        String periodCardLabel = (""+2);
        String nameEmailLabel = (""+0);
        public void init() {
            //construct components
            cardLayout = new CardLayout();
            jcomp1 = new JLabel ("Main Page");
            nextButton = new JButton ("Next >");
            prevButton = new JButton ("< Previous");
            contentPanel = new JPanel ();
            classYearCard = new ClassYearCard();
            periodCard = new PeriodCard();
            nameEmailCard = new NameEmailCard();
            //adjust size and set layout
            setPreferredSize (new Dimension (415, 414));
            setLayout (null);
            //add components
            add (jcomp1);
            add (nextButton);
            add (prevButton);
            add (contentPanel);
            contentPanel.setLayout(cardLayout); //sets layout of contentPanel
            //set content layout
            //add stuff to panel
            contentPanel.add(nameEmailCard, nameEmailLabel);
            contentPanel.add(classYearCard, classYearLabel);
            contentPanel.add(periodCard, periodCardLabel);
            //set component bounds (only needed by Absolute Positioning)
            jcomp1.setBounds (25, 5, 100, 25);
            nextButton.setBounds (205, 320, 110, 25);
            prevButton.setBounds (85, 320, 110, 25);
            contentPanel.setBounds (15, 30, 300, 285);
        public void start() { 
        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
            if (e.getSource() == nextButton){
                cardLayout.show(contentPanel, (""+currentLabel));
            if (e.getSource() == prevButton){
                cardLayout.show(contentPanel, (""+currentLabel));
        public void stop() {
        public void destroy() {

    The code runs fine in the appletveiwer, so im guessing its the HTML, but i thought it would be better to post both
