        Bug Description:
        Using NumberFormat.getPercentageInstance() with a french locale will output the percentage and the %, but there is no space between them. Our localization team indicated that, for example, "50%" should be displayed as "50 %" in french locales.


        Steps to Reproduce (be specific):

        (CODE)

        import java.text.NumberFormat;
        import java.util.Locale;

        public class TestLocale {

            public static void main( String argv[] ) {
            
             int numerator = 1;
             int denominator = 2;
            

                Locale english = new Locale( "EN", "US", "" );
                Locale french = new Locale( "FR", "FR", "" );
                NumberFormat englishFormatter = NumberFormat.getPercentInstance(english);
                NumberFormat frenchFormatter = NumberFormat.getPercentInstance(french);

                if (denominator == 0) {
        System.out.println(english + ": " + englishFormatter.format(0));
        System.out.println(french + ": " + frenchFormatter.format(0));
        } else {
        System.out.println(english + ": " + englishFormatter.format(numerator/(double)denominator));
        System.out.println(french + ": " + frenchFormatter.format(numerator/(double)denominator));
        }
                
            }
        }

        (OUTPUT)
        en_US: 50%
        fr_FR: 50%
