With Java Plug-in 1.6.0_07 and earlier, method AppletContext.showDocument
used to pop the document.

With Java Plug-in 1.6.0_10-rc2 the window is created minimized :-(
(i.e. it has to be clicked in the task bar).

Tested on:
Windows XP SP3
IE 6.0.2900.5512 SP3

This opens a document in a new tab in FF2 and opens a new window in IE6.

this.getAppletContext().showDocument(new URL(helpLink),"_blank");

However, I first thought that the new window from IE6 was iconified because it was directly behind the applet's window.
