        Description

        This bug is related to localization of the following RFE:
        4812106 Synopsis: RFE: Improve UE of JPI system tray icon

        The phone home "About Java" dialog in certain languages do not meet the layout specification on:
        http://hci.eng/desktop/java/phonehome/phonehome_spec.html#1.4

        Problems found on "About Java" dialog:

        (1) The string "Version 1.4.2" on "About" dialog is not displayed in correct coordinate. From the email from ###@###.### it looks like this may have been caused by "For more information visit http://java.sun.com/getjava" message too long and does not wrap to the next line.

        Reproducible in: Spanish, German, Italian, French, Korean.
        Example: please see attached phone_es.gif

        (2) Some text are very close to the right boundary of "About" dialog. The margin (padding) is very small comparing to the margin on the left side.

        Reproducible in: Japanese, T/S Chinese, German, Swedish, Italian, French.
        Example: please see attached phone_de.gif

        (3) Asian multibyte characters have trouble with line breaking perfectly. According to investigation from ###@###.### it may be related to the following bug:
        4510123 JTextArea.setWrapStyleWord() cannot handle the composed string properly
        Evaluation: WrappedPlainView is currently using whitespace to determine breaking, it should use BreakIterator if there are chars > 255 in the document.
