Indira,
The Java Plugin is a special way to run Applets. It tells your browser to use a specified program (the Sun JVM, I believe) to run downloaded Java Applet class files instead of using the JVM embedded in your browser. This is good because there is then a standard JVM implementation running your applet and the crappy browser VM won't throw errors you don't expect, and your Applet can use new things (like Swing) that the old browser VMs don't support. You have to use HTMLConverter to run your applet through the Java Plugin because plugins use the Object tag to run your Applet... if you used the normal [b]Applet{/b] tag the browser would use it's own built in JVM...
HTH,
-Nate
