Subject [Tomcat Wiki] Update of "FAQ/CharacterEncoding" by KonstantinKolinko
Date Sun, 03 Jun 2012 18:36:47 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Tomcat Wiki" for change notification.

The "FAQ/CharacterEncoding" page has been changed by KonstantinKolinko:

Note that JSP documents use UTF-8 by default - from JSP.4.2

  References: [[|HTTP 1.1 Specification,
Section 3.7.1]]
+ The above general rules apply to Servlets. The behaviour of JSP pages is further specified
by the JSP specification. The request character encoding handling is the same, but response
character encoding behaves a bit differently. See chapter "JSP.4.2 Response Character Encoding".
For JSP pages in standard syntax the default response charset is the usual `ISO-8859-1`, but
for the ones in XML syntax it is `UTF-8`.
