Is it supposed to be "ISO-8859-1", in the first place? Danish should be in the Latin-1 subset,

Also, why are you setting "request" and complaining on what is displayed (which is correlated
to "response" object)?

One thing that might be bugging you is the encoding of the HTML document. Is it se to ISO-8859-1?
Your page should look something like this:

<%@ page
  contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
