        Description

        Currently the certificate expiration warning message for autoinstall
        is a bit to scary and confused customers have written us to complain.
        (E.g. Erick Jennings at Wausau Insurance)

        The Java Plug0in Security Warning places the stack trace error meeage
        in the center, giving a user the impression of "not working" any
        longer. Would it be possible to change the message

        "The certificate is expired. Do you want to ignore this warning and proceed?"

        to something like

        "The certificate is expired. Installation still works. Do you... and proceed"

        and place this in the center of the warning panel. Then after leaving a few
        blank lines, print the stack trace message. It is the best to have that message
        completely out, so that a user has to scroll down to see it. Or better yet,
        don't print this scary message.

        To see this warning, visit
           http://istserver.eng/jai/autoinstall/JAIAppletDemo_auto_w4.html
        after you installed JRE 1.3.1 on windows systems.
        Make sure that JAI is not installed.

        Solaris autoinstall should do similar modifications.
