Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 48550] Update examples and default server.xml to use UTF-8
Date Wed, 22 Dec 2010 10:16:19 GMT

I had some problems forcing Cocoon output to be UTF-8 (using Tomcat5 and Cocoon
2.1.11) because I didn't realise the default was ISO-8859-1 (everything else in
my sitemaps and XSLT was set to UTF-8, which is what puzzled me).

Our internal controls insist on UTF-8 for everything, so this was only exposed
when we accessed external resources (which could of course be anything,
including Windows-1252).

My gut feeling is that if we are to continue the general move towards
end-to-end XML in the business process (or at least, XML-as-early-as-possible),
then making the character repertoire uniform is A Good Idea, so a default of
UTF-8 would seem very sensible.
