WARNING: some years ago I made some internal "cosmetic" changes in names of directories of Java classes in shelf.jar. So if you download the latest version of bookshelf after using very old one be careful about "code" parameter in your html APPLET tag. Now it is to be: code=ru.sakva.bsh.Webshelf.class .
