Example 2 contains data that is highly inappropriate for an internationalized application: Hard-coded coordinates for user interface elements. Such coordinates would have to be changed during localization to accommodate strings that expand or shrink during translation, larger or smaller fonts used for a localized user interface, expansion or shrinkage in surrounding content, or a change in the overall directionality of the user interface.

These items should be removed from the example.
