Everything seems to work fine again on my Mac.
All puzzles produce the following error:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: java/awt/geom/Path2D$Float.

I think the specified class was added in Java 1.6. The problem is that there is no 32-bit Java 1.6 plugin available for Mac. We do get a 64-bit plugin, but as of Mac OS X 10.5 all the popular browsers (Safari, Firefox, Opera) are 32-bit, so they can only use the 32-bit Java 1.5 plugin.

One of the big selling points of the recently released Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6) is that nearly all Apple applications are now 64-bit. If that includes Safari (which I'm not sure of), we should be able to use the site in Safari after upgrading. I've also found one 64-bit browser (Browser 64: http://www.ornl.gov/~t6p/Main/Utilities.html) which can load puzzles, but it's very primitive and has a tendency to crash.

Other than that, there's currently no way I know of to run Java 1.6 web applets on a Mac.
