Would you check if the first character is not used
as mnemonic key?

By localization, the first character becomes
no-ascii character. 
As a result, the mnemonic key doesn't work by
To fix this problem, we need to set two resource
bundle messages, one is for caption, another is
for mnemonic.

And we should use like this:   

I guess other many objects are implemented like
The following line does not work with localized
version, because the
first character is not an alphanumeric because
it's replaced to
     multi-byte Japanese character.

1), 2), 4) and 5) requires '&' value escaping to tag mnemonics
3) and 6) fixed in source code
Comment 8 Marek Grummich 2002-07-22 11:41:37 UTC
Set target milestone to TBD
Comment 9 Ken Frank 2002-10-14 16:27:53 UTC
Moving to P2 after consultation with A11Y QA
since we feel that these mnemonic issues
do need to be fixed in next release.

I found that, this issue is no longer re-appeared by suitable
translation. Therefore, I agree with current specs.

But, this may be re-appeared in l10n works into other language, 
in nearly future.

And I hope that, all developers put "&" which shows mnemonic
in the string, even if mnemonic is an initial character of the string.
Then, all translators can understand that exists of mnemonic.

Thank you - Hiroshi.

And I've verified, '&' sign was inserted suitably in
Therefore, this issue will never re-appear.
Thank you all !!

Consistent use of the I18N keyword.
