Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-3048) Tika unable to parse html files with non UTF-8 charset
Date Wed, 26 Feb 2020 13:35:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-3048?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=17045541#comment-17045541

Tim Allison commented on TIKA-3048:

[~akki1607], my proposal isn't really a fix.  It happens to work on the documents you have
but it isn't a fix by any stretch of the imagination.

To my mind, the only way to handle conflicting information or the case of a wrong http-meta
header is to run content extraction with both/all three charsets and then see which extracted
text is more language-y, e.g. with tika-eval's out-of-vocabulary statistic.  If you take a
look at the report I referenced above, that's where I'd like to head eventually on Tika, but
I have no funding to work on that at this point.
