Please help review the change for #7186632.


The proposed change here is to remove the backslash before the word
"inflated:". While based on j.u.Properties spec it is absolutely legal and
harmless to have a backslash before a non-valid escape character in this
case (the backslash is silently dropped), it appears it may cause confusion
to the non-j.u.Properties-expert localization translator. Given this backslash
brings no real benefit to the properties file, I decided to just remove it.
(fyi, the reason to insert space character(s) here for "created:" and "inflated:"
is to keep the output of "created:", "extracted:" and "inflated:" aligned on
a command line terminal, when "v" option is used, for example jar xvf foo.jar)
