As it turns out, Netcsape 6.1 shows the questions in the applet about 20% of the time. Only by minimizing and maximizing the display window was I able to get through a 12 question round. Internet Explore 6.0 wouldn't display the applet at all.

How many questions are in a "round"?
I'm not seeing the button which shows the answers.

Although this code will compile, put the main method in the Super class to get it to run.

Static methods can not be overridden, your code does not show that they can be because your code has no inheritance in it.
Static methods can be hidden (or shadowed) by sub classes but not overridden. The important point in this is that hidden methods (along with variables) do not take part in run time binding, the class of the method is determined at compile time based on the type of the variable. Unlike non static methods that are called based on the type of the object that the variable is refering to.
Look at this code:
run this and you should begin to see the difference.
Hope that helps you out
