Subject RE: UTF-8 vs ISO-8859-1 and really screwed up webpages.
Date Thu, 19 Dec 2002 15:21:31 GMT

What are the strange characters?   You could be looking at the optional
UTF-8 'magic header'.. a short character sequence that marks the file as
being UTF-8.

Still does not seem to be working just right.

The browser recognises that the pages is UTF8 but it puts some strange
characters in the top-left corner of the screen.

How can I stop this happening?

I think they're supposed to be, but I have found that the META tags
sometimes don't seem to work, whereas the JSP directive seems to be more
reliable.

Are the HTML meta tags and the JSP tags interchangeable?  i.e. are they
the
same thing?

It is perfectly right. You must take care not to have page directive
with contentType attribute in any included pages. If you have only one
such an entry per page then everything is alright.
I suggest to start with simple pages and then move to sophisticated
ones.

It tells me I can't have two "contentType" entries when I put in the JSP
tag!!
