Signed applet runs in Firefox but not in Internet Explorer

I've signed an applet with

keytool -genkey -validity 3650 -keyalg rsa -alias ddkey
keytool -export -alias ddkey -file ddcert.crt
jarsigner planner.jar ddkey
jarsigner -verify -verbose -certs planner.jar

but loaded from the webserver with...

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<TITLE>Planner </TITLE>
<APPLET CODE="mypack/Planner.class" ARCHIVE="planner.jar" WIDTH="100%" HEIGHT="100%">
<PARAM name="customer" value="mycustomer">

.... the applet only works with firefox and not in Internet Explorer. Even with a new certificate, IE does not ask me whether I trust the applet or not. Only a blank screen with a red cross..
In spite of having configured "show Java console", the Java console is NOT opened in the task bar, so I cannot add further log messages....

Why do the two browsers behave differently?? How can I fix it?
Appreciate any hint :-)
