i'm using j2se1.3.1 on windows2000 professional and tried running the example on page 65-67 of oreilly's "java internationalization" book, but the correct output is not displayed when i specify the "-Duser.language=it" option.  instead of displaying the message in italian, it still displays it in english...  any ideas?  thx.

On page 15 of that same book:

"Specifying the locale on the command line is convenient; however, the feature is undocumented and is implementation dependent. There is no guarantee that a Java runtime environment will support this capability"
