Thanks for the idea. I've pulled in icedtea-7-plugin but
icedtea-6-plugin is also still installed. I suppose that's what I would
have expected since having multiple JREs is fairly common.

But in any event, I tried chromium as well and it pulls up java applets
with no problem, so it's clearly an epiphany problem rather than a java
one. Since chromium is also based on webkit, it's fine for me; I just
needed something to test with using that engine. So I'll just give up on

Cheers. Dave
