Subject Re: problem with chinese output in jsp/tomcat 4.1.12
Date Thu, 12 Dec 2002 10:50:18 GMT
I don't quite see where the chinese characters come into it, but I think
you've forgotten to put the curly-brackets
round the thing that's supposed to be conditional.
Instead of....
<%out.println("hi from partha");%>

...I suggest you try...
<% if(request.getParameter("sel1").equals("1")) { %>
Hi from partha
<% } %>

However, I think this in itself is a little flawed because you're going to
get a null-reference error if you try the equals comparison if no "sel1" was

Hope that helps.
