When I load my own page, containing this, I do not get the "Install missing plugin" message in the browser. The page loads, and just sits there and does nothing.
Has anyone else experienced this ?
I've been through the code for the JavaVersion site and the only substantial difference that I can see is that my applet is signed and uses an archive. Other than that I can't see it, but I know I must be missing something....

I think we're at cross-purposes.
I definitely don't have JAVA installed and that's deliberate - I'm trying to get the right user-experience for when someone lands on this webpage, which has a JAVA applet in it, if they don't have JAVA installed.
What I would expect to see is the browser showing the standard "missing plug-in required, click here" Message at the top of their browser.
With all other sites I go to with JAVA applets in them, I see that message.
With my page (which has the Applet code above, and I've also tried the Object tag for IE), they don't.....

I'm going to throw out some suggestions... can you get to the jar file? Is it in the correct location relative to the page? If you point the browser directly at the jar file itself, what happens? Are there any file permissions that need to be set on the jar file?
Not sure if that will help any, but it's where I'd start looking.
