Struts 1.0b1 relies on the servlet container's implementation of
request.getLocale() to determine the default Locale.  What servlet
container and version are you running?  Would it be possible to write a
little debugging code and return the values that your application sees for
the "Accept-Language" header?  (There may be more than one, so you will
want to use request.getHeaderValue() instead of request.getHeader() for

This takes effect only on requests that go through the controller
servlet.  If the first request is to a JSP page (so that no Locale object
has been stored in the session yet), you will see the default language for
your server platform unless your JSP page includes:

	<html:html locale="true">
