Description jlaskowski 2005-10-02 20:18:51 UTC
[ BUILD # : 200509261930 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.5.0_05 ]

1. Create a project - New Project->General->Java Application (use the defaults)
2. Create a property file - New->Other->Properties File (use the defaults)
3. Add Locale
4. Add (another) Locale
5. Add Property to the one of the localized properties
6. Compare these two properties - Tools->Diff

The message: No difference were found between '' and ''. implies that these localized bundles aren't diff'ed properly.
