If a Java applet might have some effect on the Web browser, does that
mean it could override the browser's accessibility settings-- whether
set directly in the browser preferences or via the OS?

I asked Sun about the java applet question


Here is what they said.


"A Java applet cannot affect anything outside of the VM it is running
in.  It 

could have some affect on the web browser, to the extent the Java applet

still running.  Alt-Tab away, it should have no effect."



So it looks like a Java Applet can't override StickyKeys.   So no need
to add one for this.
