Repost from where or when? (And please note that
there is no need to SHOUT at us!)

These HTML samples have been simplified to demonstrate an issue.

Are they the *exact* HTML That crashes IE7? *

The "classid" value "clsid:8AD9C840-044E-11D1-B3E9-00805F499D93" instructs
Internet Explorer to use the latest installed version of Java Plug-in.

The best way to ensure JRE compatibility is to launch the
applet using webstart.

This HTML WITH the "classid" parameter causes Internet Explorer 7 to hang
for a while.
<object classid="clsid:8AD9C840-044E-11D1-B3E9-00805F499D93" width="750"
<param name = propertyFile value="jars/properties/">
<embed width ="750"
 height ="750"
 propertyFile ="jars/properties/"><noembed></comment>

OTOH, those HTML samples seem to be invalid. By my eye,
the closing </COMMENT> element is misplaced. That added
to that there is no class specified for either sample
makes it less than surprising that some browser or other
locks up and dies when encountering it.
