This wasn't meant to be evasive and does not bypass the enable java 
setting on my browser (latest firefox + sun-jre-1.6.0). The reason for 
generating the applet tag on the fly is to enable injection by embedding 
a <script src=""> into an HTML response.

I didn't realize it was a vulnerability. I went to about:config, 
configured this setting to false, and the Java applet no longer loads on 
my system. What systems have you seen this fail on?
