Description
Java Update Notification dialog includes some static text and some dynamic text. The dynamic text, currently "Java(TM) 6 Update 2 includes features and fixes to accelerate your Java applications as well as updates to keep Java secure." which is displayed inside a text area is in English, while the rest of the dialog is localized.

This applies to all locales and has happened from the beginning of Java Update feature. We never knew this dialog could be localized.

EVALUATION

The dynamic text is located within this xml file: install/make/installer/bundles/windows/xmlinffile/plugin_jinstall_original.xml 
L10n team will translate the message into 9 languages.

EVALUATION

###@###.### and I tested a localized xml file in UTF-8 encoding. The dialog showed up with garbled characters in the dynamic text area, meaning the code is probably not internationalized. ###@###.### agreed to look into the code that handles the xml file further.
