Javascript Alert/Confirm Dialogs and I18N

Hi,

I'm pretty sure after reading this board and many like it that it is
impossible to change the ok, ok/cancel buttons that appear by default
in the alert and confirm javascript dialogs. Now for question one why
not? And question two why do they still say ok and ok/cancel when
viewed in a non-english browser install?

I have installed Chinese IE 6.0 and these buttons still say Ok/Cancel.
the rest of the browser (buttons, menus, etc...) is in Chinese except
for these two stupid buttons. No one final question, whould having a
reginonal OS installed make any difference. Right now I'm using an
English OS but with the Chinese browser mentioned above.

Thanks
Matt

1. I think it is considered a security issue, but of course there are
ways around it for a scheming programmer. It just means the browser
isn't aiding and abetting their deception.

2. dunno.
