TXTCOLOR The color of the text, in the "RRGGBB" format where RRGGBB is the hexadecimal color-code for the text-color (red, green and blue components). In the example, the TXTCOLOR is set to "0000ff". It looks quite blue too, don't you think ?
BGCOLOR The Color of the Applets background. Tip: Consider setting this to the same color as the HTML document's BGCOLOR.

FONTFACE The fontface to use, legal values are "TimesRoman", "Courier" and "Helvetica". Non-casesensitive. Default is Courier.
STYLE The style of the fontface, legal values are "BOLD", "PLAIN" and "ITALIC". Non-casesensitive. Default is PLAIN. Note that if you set illegal values for FONTFACE or STYLE, the applet will display Courier/BOLD. If you set one of the parameters correct however (and doesn't set the other at all), this value will be used and the default value for the other.
