     All Programs - > ControlPanel -> Regional and Language Settings
b. Select "Chinese (PRC)" in the  Regional Option Tab
c. Select Apply and ok

2. Launch the applet version of the demo using the following command
     %JAVA_HOME%\bin\appletviewer.exe %JAVA_HOME%\demo\jfc\Java2D\Java2Demo.html
3. The "Applet" menu bar string will appear in English. All the other
   menu items appear in Chinese.

Expected Result:
Applet menu bar string should appear in Chinese.

EVALUATION Engineering risk is very low. There is only resource file change.

EVALUATION Will fix it in 6u11.

EVALUATION src/share/classes/sun/applet/resources/MsgAppletViewer_zh_CN.java includes non-localized "appletviewer.menu.applet" entry; transferring the bug to localization subcategory.
