Provide an alternative version of the link somewhere else on the page.
(frustrating - there are ways of making this possible but they are not yet
widely enough implemented). You should also provide the link as alternative
content, but some keyboard users may have Java enabled and so not get the
alternative content - again frustrating but the way things are implemented at
the moment.

  We have an applet that can be clicked on with a mouse to follow a link.
  The applet cannot be tabbed to or the link can't be followed with the
  keyboard.  How can this be accomplished?
