I've fixed the problem I was having with Netscape3. It was due a problem
for sending the following procedure to me. I'm posting this in case anyone
else runs into the same sort of problem.
If netscape is just leaveing a hole for the applet and not loading it the
following fix may help:

Subject: Netscape Java Fixed - For REAL!! :-)
Alright... This is the real thing (3 people have reported success with
this one). Apparently, XFree86 ships with an broken font database in
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc. There are certain fonts in the database
which don't exist in the directory, and apparently this is pissing off
some of our Xservers (it looks like , the Xserver sends a bad request
error to a Netscape thread that kills the Java applet).
Here is the fix (as root):
Then you'll need to restart your Xserver (or just run "xset fp rehash" as
the non-root user).
