Actually it doesn't run on that web page correctly either - note that
the File & Graph dropdown tabs don't work. To see how it should actually
look/work, see:


Both pages use:

<p align="center"><a name="OperationsOnVectors"
class="doclink"></a><applet code="OperationsOnVectors"
codebase="../applets/" archive="operationsOnVectors.jar, mk_lib.jar,
parser_math.jar, jcbwt363.jar" width=760 height=450>

so maybe you need to use the additional .jar's? Don't know as I've no
java experience.
