Isn't that a bug in the build system that really ought to be fixed?

If properties files are to be stored as resources in jar files, they
should either be incorporated byte-for-byte identical, or they should
be decoded using ISO-8859-1 (as specified).  It may be best to leave
non-ASCII characters in the source files, as a "test" of the build
system and the jdk itself.
