Applet runtime error - please help...

Hi, I would be really grateful if someone can point me in the righ direction. I am trying to write an Applet - when I compile it everything seems fine. However when I try to run it in AppletViewer I get this error:
java.util.MissingResourceException: Can't find resource for bundle sun.applet.resources.MsgAppletViewer, key appletpanel.badattribute.exception
Does anyone know what this is about or how to fix it?

Does it work in a browser? Does any other applet work in the appletviewer? It might just be the appletviewer itself...

Thanks for replying...
The Applet that gets the above error message works in a browser (only partially as I haven't finished it yet) and I have tried other (simple) Applets and they don't get this message.
I've tried rebuilding it from scratch but I get the error when I reach a certain point and I can't seem to back from this point.
I'm wondering if it could be something to do with the Applet being a JApplet or whether it concerns the 'Submit' button, as when this is hit the applet has to access files on the server (I have changed the permissions, but perhaps not correctly?
These are my guesses?

I should have been using absolute numbers, rather than percentages, for the width and height attributes in the HTML file. Percentages worked fine for the browser but not for appletviewer! Thus, the MissingResourceException...
I agree. Here's the link:
