Q4084 Is is possible to have the server send html to the browser that contains data from a server side database and have the page contain a java applet (that has security access to read the local hard drive) to read the local hard drive and *add to* the html page?

All you have to do is to get the applet signed and give the codebase (from where the applet is downloaded) the read permission on the machine. This can be achieved using the policy tool made available in JDK1.2. So the loaded applet can read the contents of the file may be your initialization at some perticular event and display the client's object as well.
