How to localize checkboxes

Hi All,
I understand the 'standard' way to use multiboxes. The example is pretty clear, but it strikes me as being impossible to localize. The examples all show the strings hard-coded in the form bean. Which is exactly opposite the intent of putting all your strings in nice, neat properties files that will be automatically swapped for the correct language at run time. How can you access the properties file in your form bean so you populate the String array that you are passing to the multibox?

I don't understand? The value of a multibox is purely a behind-the-scenes thing, so there's no need for i18n. The user-elements for the checkbox, such as alt text, title and label can be rendered in the usual, internationalized way. Am I missing something?
