We could certainly do that. However, is this change essential in 1.4.2_01? This change will only appear in the HTML converter in the SDK, and it doesn't affect JRE. I am wondering if CTE may want to wait for _02 to fix this.

PUBLIC COMMENTS Fixed. ConverterHelp*.java now make use of System.getProperty("java.version") for any reference to java version string. ###@###.### ###@###.### 2003-08-01
