Hello Marcel,
Thanks for the lead,
I tried everything with Netscape 2.02. It definitely is not (and probably 
can't be) Java powered on a 68K Mac (LCII 68030) as advertized, even with 
JDK (1.0.2) installed.
Moreover, JDK's "standalone" applications cannot work "as is" on my mac, 
in spite it fulfills the minimal requirements as advertized on the 
Javasoft site. A fast look at the Readme files in the JDK package 
indicate that it might work after recompiling everything (every 
standalone application).
The Java applets work within Netscape 3.0b4, however it is very slow, and 
do not always come to completion (the system freezes).
I'll try to live with this...
