I'm confused here.

You have 2 resource bundles called:
resource_fr.properties
resource_en.properties

They both have the same keys but different values.

The Struts framework will load the appropriate value from the correct
bundle based on the locale language. That's it !! One jsp can obtain
all of its string values from the bundle.

In your example, you had mentioned that you'd like the title to be
different based on the locale. You can also include the HTML in the
resource file but IMHO this not the most efficient way.

French is usually more verbose than English. At times the HTML page
must be really different to accomodate the French. In general, I
always design the page in French first as for it will work out fine in
English afterwards.
