I guess that could be an option, but this Tomcat instance is running at 
our service provider, so they would have to think so too.

The problem has now been fixed by setting the language and country

for the JSP parser to read the file correctly.

For JSP includes this doesn't seem to be the problem. It is because of 
characters being replaced with '?' when reading the JSP.

Thanks anyway,
