navigator.javaEnabled()
should tell your script whether Java is enabled or not.
Reading out the version is probably best done then in your Java applet
itself.

navigator.javaEnabled() is now effectively useless because the latest
version of IE 6 (6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2) now returns true regardless of
the version of sun java installed.

I think the reason is that Microsoft VM is installed. This was
apperently not the case until earlier this year when a security update
came out and changed the behaviour, before then if you had it disabled
or not even installed it would return false, now it alwasy returns true
on that browser.
