>> When you go to a Jmol-using web page in any web browser on Snow Leopard, you see a small gray "Inactive plug-in" message. When you click that, it runs Apple Software Update, which tells you that you are already up to date -- there is nothing new (yet).

>> There is a very technical method for re-enabling java, but apparently you need to do that once a day as Apple will undo it periodically.
>> What is blocked are all java applets in Snow Leopard, where the current java is 1.6.0_37.
>> I can still run the Jmol application in Snow Leopard.
>> I don't know about Leopard, Lion, or Mountain Lion -- I'd like reports from people using those.
>> Also I can still run java applets/Jmol in Windows.
