Question regarding Japplets inside a webpage?

I have a java applet that scrolls through some pictures that are found
in the same directory as the java code. When I run the applet from
inside of my compiler everything seems to work fine. However, when I
insert the applet into html code using the applet tag or the object
tag it dosent seem to work. The applet will appear and the buttons
will be there but when the start button is pressed it will not scroll
the pictures. I am new to adding applets to the web and am not sure
what my problem is.. any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is
the code I am using.

Html Tag:
     <applet code=gifAnimation.class name=gifAnimation
     width=300 height=400>
         <param name="bgcolor" value="ffffff">
         <param name="fontcolor" value="000000">
