> There is no documentation, but the two-letter (and now three-letter) prefix is a common convention in Cocoa and CoreFoundation API. The convention is to use the same prefix of the sub-system that has ownership of the Info.plist key in the name of the key itself. In Apple's case, we didn't do that with Java, and just stamped over a generic and highly desirable name.

OK. But it seems like the plist editor knows about the "CF" and "NS" keys and displays them with a human-readable name. Is there a way to do that for app-specific keys, ideally in a localized fashion?
