AFAIK you can only use Selenium to test that the page has those
applets and verify certain HTML attributes of the embedded objects.
Actually interacting with applets using Selenium is not possible.

If you can run those applets also as normal Java programs, you should
be able to test them independently using SwingLibrary [1]. We have
investigated that it ought to be possible to extend the library to
test applets directly too, but nobody has had time and interest to
look at it more deeply.
