No need to apologize. To view the site you only need javascript, to loop
you do need java. Example:


Install java6 per the instructions I've provided you & then restart your
browser. Look in the Add-on's/plugins to ensure that you have java
installed & test by going to:

1. Open the brower to http://java.com/en/
2. Click on the 'Do I have Java' link directly below the "Free Java
Download" button.
3. On http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp click on the "Veryify
Java version" button & let it verify that you have: (Version 6 Update 20)."
