Need expert advise on applet configuration

Hi,

I recently downloaded a very nice java applet navigation menu for a web site I am doing for a friends group. We like the look and feel of the applet so really would like to use it. the problem I am encountering is that I am having to code the actual URL params into each html page. I would much rather have an external file, like a .js file or similar, with all my link information contained in it so my menu edits would be centralized. The original files applet can be found here: NetMenu

Here is a sample of the html code:


As you can see, params "u#" are the links I was referring to. How can I get those in a centralized file?

Welcome to JavaRanch.

This isn't a configuration problem - there's no way to get applet tag parameter into an applet via a file without altering the applet source code. But it shouldn't be more than a couple hours work or so to make that change.
