      Run the code example below.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The example program below should give the output

      neljapäev, 22. veebruar 1996. a
      22. veebr 1996

      ACTUAL -
      The example program below gives the output

      22. Veebr 1996


      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      import java.util.*;
      import java.text.*;

      class DateLocaleTest {
      public static void main(String[] args) {
      Date date = new Date(824999928046L);
      Locale locale = new Locale("et");
      System.out.println(DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.LONG, locale).format(date));
      System.out.println(new SimpleDateFormat("d. MMM yyyy", locale).format(date));
      }
      }

      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Add the following statement to your date formatting code:

      if (locale.getLanguage().equals("et")) {
        formattedDate = formattedDate.toLowerCase(locale);
      }
