The single window tabbed interface by Jerome Blanc and Benoit Masson
of Thales might be useful here.
This interface is in the ptII developer tree in $PTII/thales.
The single window interface has not yet been publically released.
To start it up from, run "vergil -single".

So, perhaps this code could be used as the basis of an applet that
would allow traversal of the model?

The other thing I was working on was extending the applet code
generator so that it would generate a Web Start setup that would 
consist of only the classes necessary to run the model. 
This work is still in progress.

    This has been on the "to do" list for some time... But
    it's not entirely clear what it should do...  replace the
    current image in the web page?  Open a window?  Go to a new
    page?  I'm inclined to think it should go to a new page,
    so the back button takes you back...
