      Name: bb33257 Date: 08/24/99


      In localPatternChars of DateFormatZoneData_de.java,
      which provide localized pattern characters
      for UIs, the German characters differ in two places:
         - the character for "year" is not "y" but "u"
         - the character for "day" is not "d" but "t"
          localPatternChars { "GuMtkHmsSEDFwWahKz" }

      The first one is very confusing: in German, "year" is "Jahr" - there is no "u".
      The second one is fine: "day" is "Tag".


      I do not have standards texts about this at hand, but I think
      it would be better/more consistent/easier to use if the "year"
      letter were "j" (or maybe "J", but I would prefer lowercase).
