For my own code I want a universal version of the text in the code
(that will just be in English) so that I have a fallback in case of
problems, and than I have localized versions of it in ResourceBundles
or whatever my framework uses for internationalization / localization.

Instead of having to get the encodings right for all my code, just the
ResourceBundle files need to be in UTF-16 or UTF-8 or whatever works
best.


so long, benny
