Yes, you are (reservation below).

And I find it amazing how difficult this topic is to understand for "most 
people", some of them pretty clever.

Now, the confusion adds to the matter as the JLS initially specified that java 
source files had to have ISO-8859-1 (IIRC) encoding, later interoduced the 
-encoding argument to the compiler, and AFAIU in Java 5 changed the default.

Pier seems to suggest that the platform settings also play a role in which 
encoding the compiler chooses. This I am not aware of.

The only proper way is that Cocoon declare an encoding for source files to 
use, and that this "setting" is explicitly given in the <javac> argument, and 
any deviations are bugs.
