    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 :-)
