Description
A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
Add the localization of Eras for Dutch (NL):

            { "Eras",
                new String[] { // era strings
                    "v. Chr.",
                    "n. Chr."
                }
            }

  To:

\j2se\src\share\classes\sun\text\resourcesLocaleElements_nl.java

JUSTIFICATION :
Currently, eras is localized in Dutch (NL) to "BC" and "AD" but really should be "v. Chr." and "n. Chr." - just like German (DE).

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
Return "v. Chr." and "n. Chr." for Eras when in Dutch (NL)
ACTUAL -
Returns  "BC" and "AD" for Eras when in Dutch (NL)

---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
I don't have one.
---------- END SOURCE ----------

CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
Substitute correct localization when returning Eras in Dutch.
