Subject RE: content length on response
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2005 15:00:00 GMT
One small tip on content length. If you use UTF-8 encoding, the content
length of the page is not necessarily the number of characters in a string
or string buffer. You have to write the data to something like a byte array
output stream and then get the number of bytes.
