        Description

        Error/exception messages should be across uniform different browsers and should be even considered while changing them when compared to pld Plug-in
        Scenario I:
        http://sqeweb.sfbay.sun.com/deployment2/jitu/plugInTestsNoHarness/Liveconnect/html/UserDefinedTest1.html
        With old plug-in it used to throw same message across all browsers which is as follows:
        netscape.javascript.JSException: No such method or property "textPrivate" on JavaScript object

        But with new Plug-in on IE message is still the same but on FF3 it's throwing following message
        netscape.javascript.JSException: JavaScript error: no such property "textPrivate"

        ScenarioII:
        Applet link:
        http://sqeweb.sfbay.sun.com/deployment2/jitu/plug-bug/ojiliveconnect/src/JSObjectRemMemb.html
        A)
        WIth old Plug-in we used to throw this message for members which cannot be removed using JSObject.removeMember API
        "netscape.javascript.JSException: removeMember does not support <object name>"

        With new Plug-in message has been changes to something like below
        "netscape.javascript.JSException: Member <object_name> does not exist, or exists and can not be removed"

        Is it Ok to change this message? 'Coz it's possible that users might consider it as a regression in a sense that outside world might be doing a check for "not supported exception" and trying to implement some kind of workaround.
