I notice that the requirements are for a Microsoft platform, although it also 
requires a Java runtime environment.  Is there a pure Java version that can be 
used by those of us who do not work on the Microsoft platform?

(I have one machine which may be dual-booted into Windows 98, which I use when I 
want to test something in Internet Explorer.  This product isn't even listed as 
working on that platform.)
