Subject Re: AW: Transforming a String to valid HTML encoding
Date Tue, 28 Jan 2003 16:21:29 GMT
Hi,

I was facing the same problem in displaying the copyright and trademark
symbols. Did you find some solution for this? I shall be greatfeul if you
can share you experience with me.

What I did was I created a utility class which transforms special characters
into their HTML encodings and also decodes the same. But Struts transforms
them again e.g if I encode &#753 for one symbol Struts will encode the '&'
to &amp and hence my effort to encode will not work because my symbol would
become &amp#753. Now either I want to know if I can turn the
ResponseUtils.filter OFF or I can have it filter for my characters too (it
currently only filters 4 characters).

BTW I cam not talking about URL encoding here. I am talking about HTML
encoding for my forms and otherwise.

Thanks,

Affan

Thank you for your help, Craig.

I don't know if you got me completely right.. or maybe I didn't understand.

What I want to do is to transform the regional characters of a String like
"ü" into "&uuml;"

The reason is, that I don't want to use utf-8, but ISO-8859-1 for my html
pages. And if a "ü" appears in the ISO-8859-1 characterset in the browser,
it is not displayed correctly in a browser using the english locale. But it
is displayed correctly if "&uuml;" is used. (what is the name for this
format?)

As far as I could learn, java.net.URLEncoder transforms into
"application/x-www-form-urlencoded MIME format", used for the URLs. But this
format is not for the body of a html page, right?


Regards,
Bernhard

ResponseUtils is only worried about filtering the characters that could
cause security problems -- it is not designed to be a general purpose URL
encoder.  For that, check out the java.net.URLEncoder class.
