Muchas gracias!!! 

Solved... The text encoding of my files was not correct.  I don't know why I
assumed that my IDE would automatically create the correct version but it
didn't.  Anyway, I ran my PropertyResourceBundle files through a text
encoding converter to make them all ISO-8859-1 and now everything works
groovy..  Thanks for the heads up.
