I have a Problem with the HTML Source Editor on the Silverstripe admin site.

I want to embbed a Java Applet into a regular Page, but if i paste the applet Tag into the source editor nothing happen.

<APPLET code="Applett.class" archive = "Applett.jar" width=350 height=200></APPLET>

Wenn i reopen the HTML Source Editor the Tag is gone.

What is my fault?

I think the HTMLEditorField blocks certain html tags (I would imagine for security reasons).

What I usually do is create another HTMLText entry in the model and then just use add a TextAreaField to the getCmsFields() method. The only issues with this are that the applet wont be embeded within your page content, it will either be above or below.
