is java an export (Re: you don't have to ask, but you'll be sorry you didn't)
Java code is downloaded (like HTML) and executed by the users browser.
So probably it would be viewed as an import if someone went to a US
site and ran a PGP applet.
For the US person putting the information on the US site, if the US
government noticed and chose to make something of it they might
construe the act of leaving a PGP applet on a web server with no
download restrictions as an act of export.
There are such things as java servlets which run on the server side,
but java is normally run by the browser. You are more describing the
way things work with CGIs etc., where the server does all the work.
