Specific Safari/Java/Applet question: how do I get Safari to allow cut and paste to work in my applet's text fields?

I was wondering if some sage mefi programmer knows a way around this. Here's a test page
. The top field is done with AWT and in Safari, copy/paste keys work and the Edit menu reflects this. The bottom field, a Swing JTextField, does not have any copy/paste ability (but weirdly you can drag and drop text). The Edit menu won't work, and I understand that I won't be able to get Cmd-C and Cmd-V to work because Safari doesn't let Applets grab shortcut keys.
I could use a TextField instead, but I'm loathe to because there's a lot of code already in place that assumes JComponents. Am I screwed?
