Embedded Java in HTML?

Hi All,
This may seem like a stupid question, but I had to ask. If anyone has ever used Visual Slick Edit to write HTML documents, you will find that when you use the <SCRIPT LANGUAGE = Whatever> tag that the code completion will pop up a list of possible languages. One of them is Java. The others are Javascript, PerlScript, VBScript, and PHP. My question is, can you embed Java code in HTML? I have never heard of this. Then again, I am a greenhorn to HTML. Thanks!!!

The short answer to your question is no, you cant really use Java as a client side scripting language.
You can, however, use applets to achieve the same effect (more or less), and you can embed java in HTML for server side processing (in JSP).
I agree. Here's the link:
