Subject EncodingUtils
Date Tue, 13 Jan 2004 19:19:45 GMT
Hey Guys, I didn't realize you were already doing this,


I should pay more attention to the bugzilla. I posted a message eariler 
today approaching the issues of HttpConstants encoding methods and there 
usefullness outside of HttpClient on the Commons developer list.

Do you guys think that the Ascii stuff in EncodingUtil could eventually 
move out into something like lang or codec?
