Yes... here are two possible solutions:

1) Put normal links before the </applet>. That way they won't be displayed
on a brower that understands Java but will be seen by htdig and browsers that
don't understand Java.

2) Create a separate page with links that you use as the starting point for

Either of these should be pretty easy to set up if you already use some sort
of automated method of setting up your tree structure.
