There are 48 keywords that are being used and 2 RESERVED keywords that are NOT currently being used.(const & goto).
Check out the section "3.9 Keywords" of the Java Language Specification for the 48 keywords

strictfp is a modifier, I think new to Java2, since J2SE 1.3.
It has got something to do with float or double expressions.
There ends my knowledge of strictfp.
You may want to checkout this board or JLS for further info
