When you insert a Java Applet into an HyperText Markup Language (HTML) document, the Java Applet may not function if you do not use the same case for the class file in the Web when you enter the file name for the class file in the codebase.


According to the Java programming specification, file names are case sensitive. For example, if the original class file name is MyJavaApplet.class and you entered myjavaapplet.class into the codebase, the Java applet will not load because Java considers these two files to be different.


When you specify a class name for a Java applet in the codebase, verify that the upper- and lower-case characters you type exactly match the file name.
