1)    Java applets don't use Active-X controls.  The whole point of Java 
on web pages is that it DOESN'T use proprietary techniques such as 
Active-X that only work on Windows.  

2)    Once again someone is quoting or referencing an obsolete domain.  
Bob's site is now on an EDU domain  Due to a mis-configured domain 
server, the old domain continues to (sometimes for some people) respond. 
It should be:

    <  http://www.ew.usna.edu/~bruninga/gates.html >     

How many more decades is it going to take to exterminate the citing of 
.MIL version of links to Bob's site from other websites and search engines??

3)     There is NO Java or Active-X controls on the page.   It's only a 
static GIF image on a normal HTML page.   

4)     The findu link shown on the page may or may not truely show what 
is out there since it is only sorting by symbol.  The list  assumes that 
all gateways use the diamond-G icon.  Many other stations are gating but 
not using that symbol and thus don't show in the list.  The findu page 
is also just normal HTML with a 4-column table on it.
