      Description

      When messages_en.properties is generated from messages.xml, single quotes are turned into double quotes. For instance, the text for 42XAC is turned into

      ''INCREMENT BY'' value can not be zero.

      This doesn't seem to cause any harm. MessageFormat does the right thing and strips out the extra quote. If the messages only have single quotes, MessageFormat also does the right thing and leaves the phrase single-quoted. The double quotes, however, are confusing to the people who are localizing the 10.6 messages. There would be less confusion if the build did not insert extra quotes.
