Could be a problem with the version of Java...
you have installed or simply that you do not have java installed or yet again because the person who coded the page made an error.
Knowing the exact page that gives you the error wold be helpful.
This page for instance uses the coding on two links as an example of what it does.
Toward the bottom of the page is a small text box centered on the page with two links under it.
If you place your mouse cursor on the left lind the textbox gets focus and a text cursor appears in it.
If you place your mouse cursor over the right link the text within the textbox gets selected and highlighted.
If you do not see that happen you have a problem with your java VM.

You also shouldn't get the error message...
if java is not installed and depending on the specific coding you may not be able to open the link.

OK, I went to that page and link and it did exactly as you said. I held my cursor over the left link and got a text cursor (nothing out of focus) and over the right side it highlighted the text in the box. What next??
and the error is the programmers (would definitely help to see the URL that causes you this message) now since you indicated that all you saw was a "gray box" on the other link provided to the www.java.com site try this site and tell us EXACTLY what you see on your browser
If you do NOT see a Rubics Cube applet at top center of page you most likely have Java disabled.
I saw a rubiks cube. It showed all sides in one color each, as if it were solved.
Shortcuts that don't work
I will see if I can locate some these pages.
