The <param> tag is used to set the name/value pair that provides a parameter required by a Java object in an applet tag or by some object in an object tag. Each param tag can provide only one parameter. However, there can be any number of parameters (from zero to many). These parameters, including the name and acceptable range of values (defaults, etc.), are established by the author of the applet or object. For example, they could set the color of the applet.

This tag is placed immediately after the opening applet or object tag. There is no closing tag.
