JRE7u7 installer for MacOS does not show the "welcome" message in Japanese.
This seems related to l10n of installer.

OS : MacOS 10.8.1(Japanese)
JRE : 7u6/7u7( jre-7u6-macosx-x64.dmg/jre-7u7-macosx-x64.dmg)

Please see attached 2 screen shots and compare.

The Japanese resource file install/make/installer/bundles/macosx/resources/i18n/jre_desc_ja.rtf is missing J from Java. Fix the typo.

EVALUATION Discussed with WPTG, the translated properties file was fine. So, it's probably a cut and paste error. Please help to just insert the "J" back. Thanks!

EVALUATION I asked the submitter about the problem, and as Yong described, the problem is first letter "J" is not displayed. Broken message file is install/make/installer/bundles/macosx/resources/i18n/jre_desc_ja.rtf

EVALUATION Seems to be translation problem. Looks like, "Java" is displayed as "ava".
