1.4.1_07 07Fixed
1.4.1 Multiversioning - JPI IE browser collision
Tested Using Internet Explorer

Install 1.4.1_04b1 JDK/JRE to default install dir
Install 1.4.1 FCS JDK/JRE to default install dir

Open Java Plugin Control Panel
- Choose Start>Settings>Control Panel>Java Plugin control panel

  - Choose About Tab - shows last installed version i.e. 1.4.1 fcs 
  i.e. downgrade version
  Should it retain the latest 1.4.1_04 version ?? or is this expected? (now that 1.4.1+ are sharing the same jpicpl32.cpl)

  - Choose Advanced Tab>Java Runtime Environment>Use Java-Plugin Default

- First, run a 1.4.1 fcs specific applet using IE browser
	Java(TM) Plug-in: Version 1.4.1
	Using JRE version 1.4.1 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM

- Secondly, run another 1.4.1_04 specific applet in same browser window

The following warning prompt shows the collision
Java Plug-in Warning prompt:

Applet(s) in this HTML page requires a version of java different from the one 
the browser is currently using. In order to run the 
applet(s) in this HTML page, a new browser session is required, press 'Yes' to 
start a new browser session

> Choose Yes button on this prompt to proceed

Successfully spawns a new IE process (new browser window) as expected, but the applet in the "old" browser session contains a typo: 
"Java Plug-in detected JRE collission"
Note: collision is mis-spelt

	Java(TM) Plug-in: Version 1.4.1_04
	Using JRE version 1.4.1_04 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM
