Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache returns 404 not found for non ascii filenames with Java Plugin.
Date Thu, 09 Jan 2003 10:17:53 GMT
Hi Anthony,

As far as I know (from same problem in Hebrew) this feature is not supported
in the 2.x versions, I didn't have that problem previously when I had
1.3.2x.
If you find something that might make it to work I'll be very happy if
you'll share it with me.

All the best,
Jeff Cohen
