I am using myfaces 1.1.5, tomahawk 1.1.5

to the user. Special characters are part of this content.

When the page comes up then the characters are garbled and a rectangular box
is shown for any extended character. I believe that the encoding is not

HTML escape characters:

Character: (c)  - Proper encoding should be &#169; The value that comes up is
&#65533; which is rather strange.

When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not
know it, but for the sake of defending those that do
