      Description

      org.openmrs.web.WebUtil#NormailizeLocale() is supposed to remove control characters contained in the argument 'localeString' and return a normalized string that only contains ASCII letters (including the '' character). However, NormailizeLocale() will throw a NullPointerException when the argument, 'localeString' is "".

      In org.openmrs.web.WebUtil#NormailizeLocale() the following comment further indicates that this method should not throw an exception when it receives "_" as its input.
      Line 305: // allow only ASCII letters and "_" character
