IF USING SUDO TEXT EDIT
DON'T DRAG FILE INTO TEXT EDIT WINDOW - HIGHLIGHT THE FILE, THEN OPEN FROM "FILE"
If you open TextEdit in the manner described, open the file from the File menu.

Thank you Jon and WZZZ; your help is much appreciated. but unfortunately I am still not having any joy. I followed all the steps but now the popup is just blank instead of showing the inactive plug-in message. I didn't realise how pandemic the problem was until I read this http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/02/01/apple_blocks_java_mac/. Anyway, I thank you all again for your time but I think I am going to knock this one on the head and stick my day job which is supporting Windows.

Yes it is, running the same version as you and all the boxes are ticked.

I noticed that too. I have tried both options '-435' and '-434' which is why i am stumped. Haven't tried disabling the Safe Download List so I'll give that a go.

See this post as well.
Did you check to see if it's saving your edited version?
And does it have the proper ownership?

Thank you, I have checked that post and made the neccessary changes. It is saving the edited version and it has the proper ownership.
Sadly it is still not working and I have run out of time and patience. I thank you again but supporting the Mac OS is too frustrating and not for me...

A quick google search for Java for Mac OS X 10.6, reveals that the earliest on Apple's site is Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 6, which contains 1.6.0_29; however, the site's broken (or Apple's decided not to provide anything earlier to users), since clicking on it's link takes you to update 11.
JavaForMacOSX10.6Update5 is available via http://supportdownload.apple.com/download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Appl e_Software_Updates/Mac_OS_X/downloads/041-0592.20110628.BF4ee/JavaForMacOSX10.6U pdate5.dmg but I don't know which version it contains. FWIW, you can also get update 4 and 5 at http://www.cs.wits.ac.za/~scott/apple/Apple-07-25/. Good luck.27" i7 iMac SL, Lion, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), G4 450 MP w/Leopard, 9.2.2

Java 7 updated for 10.7-10.8
Released Feb 1, 2013, fixes 50+ security flaws
Download and install
For Java versions 6 and below OS X 10.5-10.6 machines
Apple supplies their own version of Java. For Mac OS X 10.6 and below, use the Software Update feature available under the Apple menu to check that you have the most up-to-date version of Java 6 for your Mac.
Java SE 6 End of Public Updates
After February 2013, Oracle will no longer post updates of Java SE 6 to its public download sites. We highly recommend downloading and installing Java 7.
If your considering upgrading OS X from 10.6.8 to 10.8 via AppStore to run Java 7
Be forewarned no PowerPC based programs or driver software will run any longer.
Check here BEFORE you upgrade OS X!
Alternatives if you must run Java 7
If Apple disabled Java 6 in 10.6, and you can't upgrade OS X to 10.8, then your pretty much done with Java in OS X because Oracle won't issue updates for Java 6 anymore.
However you can install Windows 7 and continue to use Java 7+ there until support for Windows 7 ends in 2020.
If your on 10.6, I very highly recommend the free Virtualbox for the virtual machine software as it gets updates, VMFusion and Parallels have moved on with only 10.7+

The link at Apple's download for Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 12 gets redirected to update 11. This is broken and I don't expect any fixes until after the weekend.27" i7 iMac SL, Lion, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), G4 450 MP w/Leopard, 9.2.2

I originally had the link in my posting, but pulled it when I found it didn't work.
I've provided feedback, but you're probably right that they won't do anything until next week now. I suspect a few of them put in many extra hours this week.

I sent feedback before posting. Now, they have at least two wake-up calls.27" i7 iMac SL, Lion, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), G4 450 MP w/Leopard, 9.2.2
