Quote from Dick Wall email:
When painting the GUI I am working on at present, I am using the
internationalization features (which are really nice) for the UI text areas,
button labels, etc. However I have a request, when I use internationalization
properties files, I get either generic text or even empty labels in the UI. It
would make the design and layout a lot easier if one of the following two
options were available:

1. Either Creator parses out the default properties file referenced and used the
labels defined in there for displaying the screen preview, or
2. Have an extra property for such fields that is a "fake" label or text value
which is displayed in the screen preview

Again I am not sure I have explained this very well, if it is confusing please
let me know and I will give describing it another go, but the upshot would be
that you can still use bindings from resource bundles to do the
internationalization, but also be able to see a representation of the values
which the user will see when designing the screen.
