Changes status bar decoration (necko.properties) on 1.6b2 an over

Hi,

Just a little change on necko.properties, from embed.jar files, easy to accomplish for future releases smiling smiley

To avoid an unknown character at the end of each phrase on the status bar (like Transferring data from www.xxx.com|) change the following on necko.properties (locale\en-US\necko\necko.properties) and take notes for K-meleon translators too ;).

From this:

3=Looking up %1$S…
4=Connected to %1$S…
5=Sending request to %1$S…
6=Transferring data from %1$S…
7=Connecting to %1$S…
8=Read %1$S 
9=Wrote %1$S
10=Waiting for %1$S…

27=Beginning FTP transaction…

To this:
3=Looking up %1$S
4=Connected to %1$S
5=Sending request to %1$S
6=Transferring data from %1$S
7=Connecting to %1$S
8=Read %1$S 
9=Wrote %1$S
10=Waiting for %1$S

27=Beginning FTP transaction

Hello JohnHell,

necko.properties files is UTF-8 code page file copied from SeaMonkey 2.0.x
The strange character at the end is a "..." character that exist in UTF-8 code page:
… -> Alt+0133

You can see it if open the file with an UTF-8 compatible editor like Notepad++.
You can look the UTF-8 code page here:
http://www.unicodetools.com/unicode/codepage-utf8.php

If you have problems to show this characters can be because you are using win9x without UTF-8 compatibility (without KernelEx).
Win2K/XP and later must'n have problems to shoe this character in status bar.
Also is possible that you are using some windows system font without this UTF-8 character.

As you said the solution is delete the character or replaced it for three dots "...".
