ResourceBundles Strings containing doubled single quotes are not properly formatted by FastMessageFormat
on display... 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: TRINIDAD-2116
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TRINIDAD-2116
             Project: MyFaces Trinidad
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions:  1.2.12-core
            Reporter: Pavitra Subramaniam


The translations tool used by the WPTG team that provides translations for the Strings in
the ResourceBundle uses special processing for single quotation marks, common in languages
such as French. In ResourceBundle files, if a message contains an argument placeholder, e.g.
{0} or {1}, it is assumed to be a format pattern for MessageFormat and the translation tool
automatically doubles all single quotes inside such a message. If the message contains no
arguments, it is expected to be used directly after loading from the bundle, without processing
with MessageFormat. Therefore, no quotes are doubled automatically in such a message. This
code change accounts for the presence of doubled quotes.

Now FastMessageFormat.java and its counterpart on the client TrFastMessageFormatUtils object
(Locale.js) assumes simple formatting rules and does not account for the presence of doubled
single quotes. So this means that for some messages French users continue to see doubled quotes
when single quotes are more the norm, For e.g., instead of 

Entrez une date avec le même format que l'exemple suivant : 01/02/2011

they see something like 

Entrez une date avec le même format que l''exemple suivant : 01/02/2011

(Notice the doubled quotes in l''exemple)
