run Java applet with <param> from HTML

This is simple HTML, Java but I am really confused. I include the code since
it is so small -


-- test.html --

      run Java applet

    <applet code="ContentExtractionApplet.class" width="580" height="25">
      <param name="fontName" value="Arial"/>
      <param name="fontSize" value="12"/>
      <param name="msg" value=""/>

-- --

import java.applet.Applet;
import java.awt.*;

public class ContentExtractionApplet extends Applet {
  // private representation

  Label msgLabel;
  Font msgFont;

  /* this is called by the browsers JVM when applet is instantiated */

  public void init()
    // setting the applet Layout
    setLayout(new BorderLayout());

    msgFont = new Font(getParameter("fontName"),Font.BOLD,

    msgLabel = new Label(getParameter("msg"));


The Java translates fine, and the applet runs when loaded in Mozilla Ff.

But if I replace "msg" with "message" in <param> and "msgLabel = ..." above
nothing shows up in my Ff browser :-(
Note a total of only 2 substitutions.

Any ideas what I am missing?

Thank you.
