           Summary: response.setContentType() never forgets "charset"
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.0.28
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Unknown
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jafshar@vignette.com


Shouldn't the following two-line jsp response with 

  Content-Type: application/x-foobar

?

<% response.setContentType("application/x-foobar");%>
Hello World at <%=new java.util.Date()%>.

It's actually responding with

   Content-Type: application/x-foobar;charset=ISO-8859-1

1) Should "charset" only be appended to non-"text/*" content?

2) I think JSP compiler automatically adds a
setContentType("text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1") at the beginning if not present.
Regardless, shouldn't a subsequent setContentType() make it forget the previous
"charset"?

3) In a servlet, this works correctly:

		response.setContentType("text/html; charset=utf-8");
		response.reset();
		response.setContentType("application/x-foobar");

It will not append "charset". Adding a response.reset() to the .jsp does not
help -- charset is still present.
