Subject Re: JSP Charset problem.
Date Sun, 27 May 2007 21:22:59 GMT
Hi Giulio

If I understand you right  you have a working configuration when you are 
starting and running the G server in a UTF-8 environment.
You can check the encoding settings used by Geronimo via the console  
JVM section.
To make sure the browser knows what encoding to expect  you can add the 
following to the beginning of the JSP files
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="application/xhtml+xml; 
charset=UTF-8" /> 

Encoding problem can be really tricky especially if the text sources 
also are fetched from a database where double encoding can be a issue.
I hope this helps.
