This shouldn't have anything to do with your browser setting, because
entities are rendered independent of any browser language setting. So
you say you are constructing a German (or whatever) locale in your Java
code and pass it to the ResourceBundle? I have been doing this and it
worked for me, that's why I wonder.

getString() is a locale-independent method, however, the ResourceBundle
static method isn't. So getString() will return values appropriate for
the locale the ResourceBundle was constructed with.
