Subject RE: Greek (and other) encodings
Date Mon, 01 Jul 2002 16:18:58 GMT

Putting <%@ page contentType="text/html;charset=windows-1253" %> does indeed
fix this under 3.2.4 and 3.3.1 in both netscape and explorer.  Not sure why
it didn't work with the META-tag only (but it didn't).  I now get to write a
script to correct all their JSPs...

Many thanks for the help!

Have you tried to set the content type with the page directive ?

<%@ page contenttype="" %>

Your example doesn't contain something like that.
