Water instructions
Select an image that you want to use for the effect and save it as a GIF or JPEG. You don't need an image for this applet, though. If you want to make a NavBar then place your buttons vertically or horizontally next to each other in one image. Now insert the applet tag into your html-document. The easiest approach would be to cut and paste the applet tags from one of the examples that came with this package and then edit the parameters. Explanation of what the parameters do is listed below. If you are using a wysiwyg-editor (PageMill, DreamWeaver, etc..) then the recommended approach is to select the applet from one of the examples and "copy and paste" it to your own file. You can now play with the parameters to configure it to your liking. The fastest way of doing this is by using a good wysiwyg-editor.
Now just upload the files to your web-server and you're done!

Applet parameters
width, height These are the standard applet tags describing the width and height of the applet in pixels.
image (Optional) The filename of the image to that goes on top of the water. The color 000000 (black) is made transparent.
dim This describes how fast the water pans out. A value of two pans out immediately while at eight it takes a long time for the water to settle. Defaults to five.
dotsize This is the size in pixels of the 'drops' to be deployed in the water by the mouse.
ndotsize This is the size in pixels of the 'drops' to be deployed in the water by the 'Noise' feature.
mouse One or zero. Enables/disables the mouse-over effect. Defaults to one.
noise One or zero. Enables/disables the static noise effect. This causes static noise in the water without user interaction. Defaults to one.
url The target url when using the applet as a button or NavBar. If using a NavBar then this value is any number of target url's, separated by a space character. Omit this if the applet is not supposed to link to anything. * Tip - You can issue a mailto: command as you would in HTML, i.e. mailto:boef@usa.net! *
target This option lets the user specify which frame to open a target url in. If omitted, it targets the default frame.
orientation This is the orientation of the NavBar. v for vertical or h for horizontal. Case-sensitive.
logoheight The height of the logo. The water is between heights 0 and 512. Any value above 512 will make the logo stay above the 'surface'. A lower value will make the logo blend in with the water. (The overlay-routine will surely improve in a latter version.)
col1 - col5  These are the color-settings for the applet. Colors are provided in hex-format, i.e. ffffff. Play with these settings to make it look good. Black is recommended for col3 (the middle).

The Nav-bar:

Making a NavBar out of this routine is pretty pointless, but the option is embedded in all applets.
To make a Nav-bar, choose orientation and put together your menu-items in a bigger GIF or JPEG. The menu-items must be of the same size as the hotspots are determined by a division of the width/height and the number of URL's. Refer to the examples to make any sense out of this.

This applet depends on the following file:

If you're uploading class-files, these are the ones you need:
DuriusWater.class, Water.class, WrApp.class, Screen32.class
