Subject tomcat 4.1.29 and static content in non Latin (ISO-8895-1) characters
Date Tue, 18 Nov 2003 08:15:58 GMT
Hello,

I red some similar problems reported, but I'd like to post my question to the tomcat user
community.

I have an existing static documents (something.html) which has to be seen in Cyrillic (Windows-1251).

An appropriate meta tag is included to tell the browser to use the right charset:
<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content=text/html; charset=windoes-1251">

Seems the new html connector (coyote 1.1) that comes with tomcat 4.1.29 strictly follows the
standard and returns HTTP Header
Content-type: text/html ; charset=ISO-8859-1
"if no character encoding has been specified".
  
The browser is forced to show the Cyrillic in ISO-8859-1. I suppose any other non latin languages
have the same problem.

JSP pages works fine if 
<%@ page contentType= "text/html; charset=Windows-1251"  is specified.

The same problem appears with filters (like sitemesh for example), as far as the content comes
from a static .html it's not shown properly even with <%@ page contentType directive specified.

Does anyone found out a solution of this problem or are there any plans tomcat to support
"static non latin content".

Many Thanks
Yavor Trapkov
