Ok, applets can be horrible little things, and sometimes it's not their
fault. Nine times out of ten it's the sandbox (applet security), or a
browser not handling java 1.1 or jdbc (some don't know about jdbc :-( )
Your code looks ok. I placed your URL into an application here, and all I
Connection failed: java.net.UnknownHostException: godel.bioc.columbia.edu
which is ok, as I wasn't connected at the time ;-)

As far as I can see, your problem is here.
First, don't put .class in the code argument. It can break some browsers.
Technically it's the class name that goes here, not the file name.
The main problem is the archive argument. The browser is loading the
postgresql.jar file, looking for the JDBCtest class. It fails, so it then
looks at the directory that the html file is in. It find's JDBCtest, but
as it's not in the jar file, some browsers implementations of the
"Sandbox" prevents the driver to be found.
There are two solutions:
extract the files from postgresql.jar into your html directory
create a new jar file containing the contents of postgresql.jar
and your applet.
Remember: it's important to keep the directory structure.
