See : http://java.sun.com/products/jsp/syntax/1.2/syntaxref1210.html

# contentType="mimeType [; charset=characterSet ]" |

        "text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1"

     The MIME type and character encoding the JSP page uses for the response. You can use

any MIME type or character set that are valid for the JSP container. The default MIME type

is text/html, and the default character set is ISO-8859-1.

# pageEncoding="characterSet | ISO-8859-1"

     The page source character encoding. The value is a IANA charset name. The default 
character encoding is ISO-8859-1.


In other words,
- the contentType specifies in which character set and encoding the /result/ will be sent

to the browser.
- the pageEncoding is destined to the JSP compiler : it tells the compiler in which 
character set and encoding your JSP "program" is written, so that the compiler can read it

properly.

If you use an UTF-8 capable editor, then you could edit and save your JSP page as a 
Unicode/UTF-8 file, and then change the pageEncoding to say : pageEncoding="UTF-8".
In the absolute, that would be more logical, if the response to the browser should be 
UTF-8 anyway.
