Dear Tony,
nice work, but probably you want to improve it a bit ... infact the
Java 3D PDB Viewer of Scott Le Grand (http://www.mbi.ucla.edu/people/
legrand/pdb.html) is definetively faster to load and less "jumpy" 
in performance. A suggestion, if you call it "lattice viewer"
why do not you add the possibility of looking at the symm-related
and to the molecules in the neighboring cells ? Obviously you know
the math needed, and with that add on you applet would gain a niche
still free ...

Crystallographic regards for the good work anyhow !

p.s. if you are going to produce more Bio- applets, do not hesitate
contacting me directly to include them in the "Java-based Molecular 
Biologists Workbench" which I am keeping up at
