I think you need to split this into two parts - first a flexible (but 
lightweight) mechanism for resolving charsets or locale data on the fly, and 
then secondly downloading from a remote server as one way of retrieving the 
data. Where the data is determined by the Locale the mechanism could be based 
on java.util.ResourceBundle; then it becomes a question of how to control the 
search mechanism so that in some cases it will include a remote repository.

Chris
