I have recently started code signing my applets securely, and I am very pleased with the way this is being handled on hosted sites. However, it appears now that the applet is dead when included in a page that involves file://.The important use case is people going to conferences where internet is not available and applications that are specifically field application and cannot require internet access. Is all non-internet access (file://) blocked to trusted signed applets? Is this a bug? Is that expected? Did I miss a memo?
