Subject Re: what is the woody form binding encoding?

Sending a mail twice is worse than sending it in HTML format ;-)
I answer on the HTML mail as in the other mail there seem to be problem 
with line endings.

I don't know what exactly you have configured, but the default encoding 
used in Cocoon for serialization should be UTF-8 (have a look on the 
serializer declarations in the components section, UTF-8 is default, if 
nothing is specified). But the default for the form-encoding is set in 
web.xml, if not set it's ISO-8859-1, but maybe this depends also on your 
servlet container or JVM. The problem is a mismatch between the both. 
Therefore a fix was added before release Cocoon 2.1.3, that set's the 
default serializer encoding (if nothing is specified) to the default 

Of course it's difficult to say what exactly is wrong with your setup as 
many issues might play a role. But UTF-8 everywhere should work also 
with Chinese characters. What encoding has the form on the browser? And 
is this recognized correctly by the browser? Are you sure the resulting 
XML file is wrong and it's not maybe only a viewing problem when the 
editor can't handle the encoding?
