MessageResource and place holders

There is a limitation in java.text.MessageFormat class that it can format only 10 placeholders in a message. As I understand, struts lives with that limitation and I could not find anything in the MessageResources class that overcomes that limitation.
Is there anything I am missing here? My requirement is to construct a formatted message from a list of | separated values. I am successfully doing that for upto 10 values.
Eg. values are 1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10|11|12|13|14
and the formatted message is
{0} and {2} and {3} and ... and so on.
Please suggest a solution.
Thanks in advance.

"Yogi Bear",
Thanks for joining JavaRanch!
I really loved you in that Christmas Special! Unfortunately, we have this pesky naming policy which forces us to choose normal sounding names, but nice try anyways. You can update your display name by editing your profile here.
And don't go running off to change your name to Smoky D. either... because I'll be watchin.

Hi Yogesh,
OK, that's a bit better than "Yogi Bear," but please do read the naming policy; it requires you to use both a first and last name. Your real name would be just fine -- that's what most folks around here use.
