Subject Re: problem with StringEscapeUtils on linux inside tomcat
Date Mon, 07 Sep 2009 19:30:14 GMT
Apologies for the slow reply. Common approach on this list is to tag
the subject, ie:

[lang] problem with StringEscapeUtils

that can help it to be noticed.

escapeHtml has a much disagreed with 'feature' that it escapes
non-ASCII characters. That could be what you're seeing; perhaps mixed
with unexpected encoding setup on your side that obscure it. ie) using
SHIFT_JIS instead of UTF-8 and then seeing the escaped ASCII making it
