IMHO the English source needs a more major overhaul, especially the lately added extended applet security's messages. It has quite a few inconsistencies. I have left the last message (html help) untranslated. It probably should be moved to an external html document and localized appropriately.

This change is being suggested because Java is a proper name, so it should begin with a capital letter.

Proper name here as well. In any case, the java command is probably not ment here.

Yes, should be the case since this message is a text in a drop-down.

The same message is displayed for deployment properties that take a path to a file as well as those that point to a directory. There also may be properties that may point to files or directiries inclusively. If there is need for explicit distinction, there should also be distinct messages. Otherwise, the term "file or directory" seems to be a closer description of the accepted or required type.

They should at least be consistent with CVUser and CVSystem. As I see it, "Global" is a vague term that implies blurry boundries. What is "Global"? The local computer? The enterprise network? The web or even the world?
Thank you for filtering out the missing messages! I will provide translations for them asap.
