Applets have the complete Java API at their disposal. If you browse through it you'll see plenty of capabilities that HTML (even in conjunction with JavaScript and CSS) has not, e.g. graphics.

I think that's too general a statement. There is some overlap between what applets and HTML/CSS/JS can do, and some of those areas are very simple to address with applets and very hard with HTML, and in other areas it's the other way around.

An applet will give the developer more control over state management and state transitions in a user interface. An applet doesn't have a back button, or a bookmark, like a web broswer does. Well, an applet does run in a web browser, but you know what I mean.

I'd think plaing a sound, or displaying an image would be much easier in an html page. But if you find applets easier, then all the power to you.
