Description
FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.6.0_16"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_16-b01)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.2-b01, mixed mode)

ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
openSUSE 11.1 x86-64, Linux xxxx 2.6.27.7-9-default #1 SMP 2008-12-04 18:10:04 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Messages are incorrectly formated in french locale.
Apostrophes (i.e. quote characters: ' ) don't show up where they should and numbers in curly braces will appear instead of values after that position. The curly braces are the format specifiers of the MessageFormat format string, and it seems that the previous apostrophe is escaping them. Instead the quote should have been doubled to escape itself.
This doesn't happen in US locale.
It seems to be a regression of bugfix 6435443.

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Just go into the French locale and print any keytool message with a localized value.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
The ouput in US locale (as expected) :
$ export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8
$ keytool -list -keystore keystore -v -alias xxxxx
Enter keystore password:

The ouput in french locale. Note some quote characters are missing (e.g. in "Type d'entr??e") and some values don't appear and are replaced by curly braced numbers.

REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

Release Regression From : 6

bug was not reproducible. Since then there has been a regression.

EVALUATION

Messsages used in messageformat needs to have double aposprophies. 

In 6435443, we only fixed the string on which problem was reported, rather than checking the whole file. This time,the problem is at key "*PATTERN* printX509Cert"

This time, we will check whole file, j2se/src/share/classes/sun/security/util/Resources_fr.java, to make sure no such problem happens anywhere in the resource file.

We also need to double check spanish and Italian translation.

This is not a regression, as fix in 6435443 is still valid, but 6435443 is only a partial fix.
