An example of the applet tags to embed the applet shown above is:

<applet codebase="vcclient"
        archive="COM/volano/VolanoChat.jar"
        code="COM.volano.VolanoChat.class"
        width="500" height="60">
<param name="cabbase" value="COM/volano/VolanoChat.cab">
<param name="color"   value="#FFFFFF">
<param name="group"   value="Welcome to Volano!">
<param name="text"    value="english.txt">
</applet>

After the button is pushed, the main chat window is presented to the user, who can filter for rooms, type their name and profile, and select a room to enter:
